Shrimp with Peanut Sauce – EASY DINNER (Low Carb)

Shrimp with peanut sauce is not only delicious, but easy, and keto or low carb friendly, if served over cauliflower rice. I’ve made this TWICE in the past two weeks, and it was even better the second time around.

The flavors are really wonderful, full of all the things I love when I attempt an Asian profile.

This is a very fast meal and best eaten immediately, although I can attest to the leftovers being pretty tasty.
