🌸🌿 Thai-Style Pan-Seared Pacific Cod 🌿🌸
Panang Curry, Fried Basil
Bell Peppers, Onion, Ginger, Peanuts, Coconut, Lime
Panang Curry, with its savory blend of shrimp paste, Thai chilies, and aromatics such as lemongrass, kaffir lime, and galangal is heavenly when paired with Wild Alaska Pacific Cod. Cod is a very pleasant fish with a slightly sweet, mild clean taste and a lean flaky texture.
Together, the result is a delightful dish that is just bursting with flavors. Bell peppers, onion, and ginger form the vegetable base; where roasted peanuts add crunch and nuttiness; a drizzle of coconut milk adds creamy tropical notes; and a squeeze of lime adds that sour punch.
The best part is plenty of fried basil leaves, adding shattering herbal notes. Jasmine rice is served on the side to sop up what might be left of that exotic fragrant curry.
