Shrimp is my favorite seafood. Salmon and scallops run a close second, but shrimp will always win out.
I have created many shrimp recipes over the years with varying types of flavors. But this is the first time I’ve really gone all out on making a nice, thick peanut sauce to go over them, and I was totally happy with the way it turned out.
This was originally supposed to be a pressure cooker recipe, but I didn’t like how it turned out, so I made it again on the stove top and everything turned out just fine. The sauce was creamy and definitely full of peanut flavor while the bok choy gave it some fiber and nutrition that only vegetables can give you. It’s a well rounded, one-pot dish that comes together simply and easily with uncomplicated ingredients. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
Recipe Notes: This recipe is a little higher in carbs due to the peanut butter. So the fastest way to reduce that is to reduce the peanut butter to about a 1/4 cup and the vinegar to 1/8 cup. But still, 6 net carbs ain’t bad!
