Catholics all over the world abstain from eating meat on Fridays (and Ash Wednesday) for all of Lent. Something so simple stresses me out EVERY year!! I know…just order Pizza, right?? Yes, yes we do eat a lot of Pizza, but we also really enjoy fish too.
Today, like every first Friday in Lent, I forgot the no meat thing and needed a lunch. I remembered my brain was working a few weeks ago when I bought some frozen shrimp to use during Lent (thank you Trader Joes!). So I found (and of course changed a bit) the yummiest shrimp recipe. Trust me, incorporate this recipe into your lent menu!! PB2 Thai Peanut Shrimp over Salad!!!🍤⤵️
PB2 Thai Peanut Sauce
2 Tbs PB2 (or any powdered peanut butter)
2 Tbs Soy Sauce
1 Tbs Water
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Ground Pepper
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (more or less depending on spice preference)
2 tsp Stevia
1/2 tsp Sesame oil
2 tsp olive oil
-1 pound of Shrimp
-Himalayan Pink Salt
-Salad of choice (mixed greens, spinach, kale, etc.)
Mix all ingredients for sauce together in a bowl.
Cook Shrimp however you choose. I took a little bit of extra virgin olive oil and cooked in a deep pan over a medium flame. Once the shrimps were just about cooked I threw in the Peanut Sauce and lowered heat. I mixed shrimps and sauce for a a couple of minutes to warm sauce and cover shrimps.
Put desired amount shrimps on salad. I used warmed Peanut Sauce as dressing over salad. Sprinkle with some Himalayan Pink Salt and ENJOY!
