I enjoyed this recipe with a few small deviations. I started with Recipe #69191 to make peanut sauce as I didn't buy any. I also used Red Curry Paste not powder as it is more flavorful. I did not have lime leaves, but I had fresh limes in the house, so I squeezed out one lime into the recipe. I did not have coconut cream, so I used heavy whipping cream and the fish sauce. I don't like this quite as well as my favorite thai restaurant in town, but it's better than the other thai restaurants. =-) I'm already looking forward to my leftovers. I did add mushrooms and green peppers to it as I like some vegetables in my panang. It was very easy to make and had good flavor.
