Thai Panang Curry Bowl with Shrimp

This Thai Panang Curry Bowl with Shrimp is a homemade version of my favorite restaurant meal. This delicious, uber creamy, nourishing bowl is gluten-free and packed with healthy fats and protein thanks to the coconut milk, peanuts, and colossal shrimp from Sprouts.

I don't know if I'm the only one, or just a weirdo, or what... (<--- totally plausible)

but... I often find something that I like at a restaurant and then I order it every.single.time. 

I know what I like, people!!


  • Shrimp Panang Curry at our local Thai restaurant (the inspiration for this recipe!)
  • Greek chop salad at our local tavern
  • Basil veggie melt at our local deli
  • green chile bowl with eggs at our local diner

One of the things I love most about the panang curry at the restaurant is how gigantic the shrimp are. That's where these colossal wild-caught shrimp from Sprouts come in.

Panang (or phanaeng) curry is a special variation of Thai red curry paste that has a sweet and salty, nutty flavor. It is actually fairly difficult to find in regular stores, so I just made my own version using regular red curry paste plus powdered peanut butter (one of my favorite things) and other flavors. And it was perfection.

And the fun part? Topping it with alllllllllllllll the good things: red cabbage, broccoli sprouts, cilantro, sesame seeds, green onions, and peanuts!
