  • 12 shrimp, cooked, wild-caught
  • 2 c. rice, brown, organic
  • 1 lrg. onion, red, organic
  • 1 orange, fresh, organic
  • 6 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. ginger, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic
  • 2 tbs. honey, raw, unfiltered, organic
  • 4 tbs. peanut butter, creamy, raw, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, powder, organic
  • sea salt, unrefined and pure to taste
  • 1 basil, fresh, organic

Start with the rice. Put it in a pot with water and boil according to the instructions on the package. Next, take the onion and chop it into little pieces. Heat up about 2 tblsp of olive oil in a medium size sauce pan. Add the chopped onion to the sauce pan, but not all of it – only 2/3. You will need the remaining 1/3 for the spicy sauce. Keep it on a medium heat. Chop 5 cloves of garlic into tiny pieces and add them to the sauce pan and saute until the onion starts turning slightly brown. Take the bowl of cooked, peeled, frozen shrimps. Add the shrimps into the pan and mix it in with the onion and garlic. Saute for another few minutes until the shrimps are done. They are already cooked so just make sure that they are hot before you turn off the heat. Take the remaining onion and put it into blender.You will need a piece of fresh ginger that is about the size of 2 tblsp, which you will add with the remaining 1 clove of garlic into the blender. Add about 2 to 3 tblsp of water and turn the blender on for a few seconds. It doesn’t have to be complete mush – let it have some texture. Add 4 large tblsp of raw peanut butter and add it to the blender. Then add about 2 tblsp of raw honey into the blender, and also add 1/2 tsp of chilli powder and 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper. Now you will need to add 4 - 5 leaves of fresh basil into the blender. The last ingredient is freshly squeezed orange juice. 1/2 an orange is enough and you can use the other half as a garnish. trn the blender on again for just a few seconds – the basil should be visible in the mixture. Mix the spicy peanut sauce in the sauce pan with the shrimps and add salt according to your own taste. It’s done! Now you just have to garnish your meal with fresh basil and orange and serve.
