I love the Panang Salmon at the local Thai restaurant and wanted to be able to make it myself. This is an adaptation of the recipe on the Mae Ploy Curry Paste container. Coconut milk comes in a 16 oz can and a slightly smaller size. Coconut milk varies in quality as well--some thicker than others. Experiment until you find a brand you like. So far, my favorite is AROY-D from Thailand. If you can only find the smaller size, just use less water. This ratio of curry paste to liquid is moderately spicy--adjust to your tastes. If you don't know--start with half of what is called for.
