Thai Peanut Shrimp

There is this Thai place by me that makes a delicious Amazing Chicken. It is chicken, broccoli, and a slightly spicy peanut sauce. You can also get this with shrimp or tofu.

I was craving it but didn’t really want to go get some so I looked in my fridge and freezer to see what I could do to replicate the recipe with what I had on hand.

Turns out I had frozen shrimp (always!), broccoli, San-J Thai Peanut Sauce, some peppers and onions, and a can of coconut milk.

This recipe is kind of a cross between Amazing Shrimp and coconut curry. And it is delicious!  And fast! And easy! Checks every box for a quick weeknight dinner.

I also had a lot of rice on hand – I ordered 25 pounds of rice having no idea how much rice that is – and well, it’s a LOT! Basically, a toddler’s weight in rice. So, I served it on rice.

Give this recipe a try, it is worth a lot more than the effort it takes to make it!
