About this Recipe

Panang curry originates from the central region of Thailand and is one of the most popular Thai curries in America. Panang curry gets its characteristic flavor from chilies, Thai spices, peanuts, and coconut milk. This recipe combines peanut butter and spices with store bought Thai red curry paste to replicate the traditional Panang curry flavor. Brava Chef Erin highly recommends making sure to include the fish sauce in this recipe which gives the dish its characteristic savory Thai flavor. If you don’t have fish sauce on hand, make sure to season the dish to taste with salt instead.
