On to the food…

After going to True Foods, I realized that I had to have their Shrimp Panang, well, all of the time. I have been craving it ever since and knew my husband wouldn’t be too cool with me eating there 3 times a week. So, I realized I had to figure out how to make a panang sauce. After looking up many recipes to get an idea of what I would need to make this sauce, I realized I would have to get some Kaffir Lime Leaves and Panang Curry Paste. I couldn’t find these ingredients at our Publix and apparently only some Whole Foods carries them so I went to ole reliable Amazon to place my order.

I was going to use some frozen wild shrimp and broccoli I got from Trader Joe’s to make the dish, but, then I was at Costco and they had small lobster tails and I just couldn’t resist. So tonight, after 5 minutes of prep, one of my favorites dinners was reincarnated. Really, 5 minutes. I opened a bag of lobster tails (you could also use wild frozen shrimp, chicken -but then you’d have to cook it and I was feeling extra lazy tonight) and added some frozen broccoli crowns and the ingredients below. It might have been the easiest meal I’ve made in awhile, and I usually always make pretty simple meals, but it was also really good. It was actually pretty spicy (years ago I would never have guessed I could eat a meal like this with my an autoimmune in my gut) but I was able to eat it. The only side effect was it made my face sweat! I should be embarrassed, but honestly, I was more excited that I could actually eat something spicy! Who says you can’t heal your gut!?

The same sauce I used for the Thai Chicken Soup


Costco made simple…

Or anywhere else you can get wild shrimp and some pre-cut broccoli (or whatever veggie you desire) for the easiest and tastiest meal!
