You will need the following ingredients:
cooked and peeled shrimps (about 1 bowl), brown rice (about half a bowl), 1 large red onion, 1 orange, 6 cloves of garlic, 2 tbsp of fresh ginger, extra virgin olive oil, honey (about 2 tblsp), crunchy peanut butter (about 4 tblsp), chilli powder (1/2 tsp), cayenne pepper (1/2 tsp), salt, fresh basil.
Let's start with the rice.
Put it in a pot with water and boil according to the instructions on the package (it will take about 30 minutes). You can also add a little piece of butter (up to you).
Take the beautiful and sweet large red onion.
Try to chop it without crying.I learned already that chewing a gum helps to avoid the tears and saves your mascara from smudging :)
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.
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.
Add the ginger and 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 peanut butter and add it to the blender.
Squeeze about 2 tblsp of honey out of the cute bear right into the blender.
1/2 tsp of chilli powder or the kind of red chille pepper (in the middle) and 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper goes in the blender too. Pulse that until it is a sauce consistency, add it to your pan and simmer for a few minutes and then serve with the rice!
