Spicy Peanut Lime Shrimp

When time is short and you want something delicious and light, this is the recipe for you!  It uses minimal ingredients and the part that takes the longest is letting it marinate!  That's the definition of easy in my book.  I served the shrimp over a nice big salad, but you can serve it over rice or noodles or just on it's own.  It's completely up to you.  And... for those of you that don't like shrimp, use chicken strips instead - granted cook time is longer, but you'll still have a delicious and light dinner in no time at all!

Ingredients:
1 Tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon lime juice
drop of sesame oil
1 teaspoon Sriracha
30-40 medium shrimp, deveined and tails removed

Directions:
In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together all the ingredients, except the chicken, until well combined.  Place the shrimp in a shallow bowl and pour the marinade over top.  Toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Place an oiled grill pan over direct heat and let sit for 1 minute.  Place the shrimp on the grill pan and grill for 2-3 minutes per side or until the shrimp is pink and cooked through.  Carefully remove from grill and serve immediately.  Serve over salad, noodles, or rice and veggies.  Enjoy!

Sounds very good Jenn. I know I've never made a peanut sauce dish and can't remember if I've eaten one or not as we ate many different dishes during our three day trip to China a few years ago.

Or it would be good in a lettuce wrap but no body in their right mind does lettuce wraps ;) :) :0
