Thai Red Curry Sauce Recipe - FABULOUS! Had to share!

I just wanted to share this recipe with you. It tastes like authentic, restaurant quality Thai Red Curry sauce, AND it's low in carbs. It's one of my all time favorites. You can serve it over jasmine rice for guests. I think it's great just the way it is!

1 small onion, sliced very thin
1 red bell pepper, sliced very thin
1 TBSP Coconut oil (or olive oil, canola oil, etc.)
1 can (14 oz) Light Coconut Milk
3 TBSP red curry paste
1 TBSP Thai fish sauce
1 TBSP fresh lime juice
2 drops liquid Splenda (this is optional, based on your taste. original recipe called for real sugar. I add some liquid Splenda, or 1 Splenda packet would probably be fine)
Fresh cilantro
1 lb uncooked protein of choice: favorites include chicken, shrimp, or a firm white fish such as bass or haddock - cut into 1 inch cubes

Heat oil in a medium size skillet and cook onion and pepper until tender-crisp. Remove vegetables and add coconut milk. Heat on low until warm. Whisk in red curry paste and heat until bubbles are just beginning to surface. Add protein and allow to poach in the sauce. Keep sauce at a low boil.

Cook until protein is cooked through - time will vary depending on what you're making. When protein is done, add vegetables back to the skillet. Add Splenda, fish sauce and lime juice and gently stir together.

Serve immediately. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro.

*Note: last time I made this I added 1 TBSP natural peanut butter as well, and it was great! Added another layer of flavor that I really enjoyed! I garnished it with fresh cilantro and ground peanuts.

I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious and easy. With Miracle Noodles for me, rice for my DH

I used 2 large chicken breast halves for the protein. A small onion, half a yellow bell pepper and 2 jalape˝os - one that had gone red sitting on my counter - as the vegetables. I also added the 2 drops of liquid Splenda and peanut butter as suggested.

It made enough for dinner for the two of us plus leftovers enough for a lunch.
