tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Zest the lime to get 2 teaspoons (or use the small side of a box grater). Halve the lime crosswise; squeeze the juice into a large bowl. Peel the carrots and grate on the large side of a box grater. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Halve the cucumber lengthwise, then thinly slice on an angle. Roughly chop the peanuts.

To the bowl of lime juice, add the lime zest, peanut butter spread, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Stir to combine. Add the grated carrots and sliced cabbage; season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 5 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Meanwhile, pat the shrimp dry with paper towels (remove the tails, if desired). Season with salt and pepper. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through. Turn off the heat.
