Turkey & Seafood Surf & Turf with Tomatoes and Curry

Autumn is the perfect time for surf and turf. In this English name, the first part refers to the sea (surfing, gliding on the smooth surface of the waves), and the second (peat, turf) to land, but in general this stable expression means the use of meat and seafood in one dish. In this surf and turf recipe, squid and shrimp are responsible for the sea, and turkey is for the land.
