PB2 Thai Peanut Sauce and Shrimp

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

*Additional ingredients:

-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!
