Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy-Free
Sun Basket’s lemongrass paste has quickly become a customer favorite because it provides all the complex, authentic flavor of a from-scratch curry paste, while sparing you the work of tracking down the ingredients and then pounding the aromatics in a pestle. The lemongrass curry paste in this South Asian-inspired dish adds in a briny fish sauce and the warming spices of coriander, cumin, and cloves.
