Speedy Shrimp w/ Snow Peas

This evening I made Shrimp w/ Snow Peas and served it over "cauliflower rice" (fresh cauliflower that I grated with a box grater and steamed in the microwave for 2-3 minutes).  I made a speedy version of shrimp stir-fry almost identical to the Speedy Shrimp Stir-Fry w/ Broccoli I've made before.  The only difference is that tonight I used snow peas instead of  broccoli florets, I steamed fresh snow peas with a little diced red pepper and a thinly sliced carrot for 2 to 3 minutes to keep crisp-tender (instead of the broccoli).  The recipe I used is linked above (the only difference was the snow peas and a little diced red pepper instead of the broccoli).  The secret ingredient for thickening the sauce is raw cashew butter. It was so quick and easy to make.  I "cheated" by using already cooked shrimp that I reheat in the wok rather than raw shrimp.  I snapped a few photos for you to see below.  Enjoy!

GG, my post (yesterday) did not get posted!
Just loved the colors and the dish looks delicious!
Shrimp and snow peas, how can one go wrong ?
Wish I could catch up with all your dishes! But so far I loved everything! Today I am trying the granola sans grains. Made 32 ounces of concentrated coconut milk, I hope that it does not go bad before I can all use it up!

Hi Barbara! I don't know what happened to your post -- I didn't see it. But, I did find a post someone sent about a week ago that didn't show up in my list or get posted but it showed up in my email. How strange. Let me know if that happens again -- because I have no way to know if there is something wrong. I love shrimp and snow peas -- so simple. Make sure to keep your "grainless granola bars" refrigerated -- especially in this warm weather. I enjoyed them with a cup of coffee as either a snack if hungry or a little dessert. I hope you enjoy the condensed coconut milk, too. :-)
