Pork and peanuts. Pork and peanuts. Pork and peanuts.
Do you really need anything else?
In this instance, yes: you also need some coconut milk, a little red curry paste, and fish sauce. Mix all those together and you wind up with a wildly delicious, shockingly simple sauce to complement your skewers of grilled pork. The peanuts and the coconut milk help to cut the heat of the curry paste a little, but if you make your curry paste from scratch, you can kick up the spiciness to whatever suits your palate.
For those who don't want to whip up their own, red curry paste can be found in any Asian market and usually in the international aisle of most supermarkets.
This is an ideal dish for a first course: it's simple, light fingerfood that's absolutely fantastic.
