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 if you can’t make it to Costco,
Trader Joe’s 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!
- 1 (or 1 1/2 cup) can coconut milk
- 2 cups lobster tails (shrimp or chicken)
- 1 cup broccoli
- 2-3 tbsp panang curry paste (i used 3 and it was pretty spicy!) Start with 2 and you can always add more. You can't take out.
- 5 kaffir lime leaves
- 1/4 tsp fish sauce
- 2 tbsp coconut palm sugar
- Steam the broccoli.
- Mix all ingredients into a medium pot and cook until warm.
- That's it!
Lara - this looks awesome! Can’t wait to try. So if I get frozen shrimp do I just dump in frozen and heat for a few min?
landriav - I have a lot of the kefir leaves (got a pack of 3) if you want some Lara, just let me know!
Lara - thanks!!!
Michelle Schiess - Yea I won:) I am super excited about getting this book!!!
