Shrimp Bowl with Thai Peanut Sauce

peanut shrimp bowl

We really try not to eat out very often. It is much healthier to eat homemade meals and it’s cheaper too. I have been taking and Italian language class right after work on Mondays and if I don’t prepare something ahead of time, I usually don’t have time to cook dinner… so I use that excuse to eat out! (it’s nice to have someone else do the cooking ONCE in awhile I suppose)  Last Monday I got this Thai shrimp bowl from a place called Green Tomato Grill. It was so good!! I knew had to try and make this myself so I wrote down all the ingredients I could see while I ate it and then proceeded to make it at home the next day!

It wasn’t exactly the same but it sure turned out very close! I will be making this again and again, I know it. So if you have eaten at Green Tomato Grill, here is an excellent copy-cat recipe for their shrimp bowl. If you haven’t eaten there before, this is still an excellent shrimp bowl recipe.

I made it with shrimp for myself but I substituted grilled chicken breast for my boyfriend (he’s not a fan of shrimp… I think he’s missing out).

 

Shrimp (or Chicken) Bowl with Thai Peanut Sauce

Serves two. Double this recipe for leftovers.

Ingredients:

  • Thai peanut sauce (find my easy recipe here)
  • 1 cup dry Jasmine rice (to make about 2 cups cooked)
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
  • Green onions
  • Chopped-up roasted peanuts
  • Shrimp or chicken

To Do:

Cook the Jasmine rice in a rice cooker or stove top, according to the package.

While the rice is cooking, make the thai peanut sauce and prep all of the veggies: shred the cabbage and carrots, cut up the green onions and defrost the edamame if you bought it frozen.

Cook the shrimp on the stovetop for about 3 minutes. Use a little oil and season it with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Serve the rice in a bowl and top with all of the fresh ingredients: cabbage, onions, carrots, edamame, and shrimp. Pour the thai peanut sauce over everything at the end and top it with a little bit of chopped peanuts.
