Peapod Meal Kit: Ponzu-Glazed Shrimp Basmati Rice & Peanuts By Uncle Ben's



Prep time: 5 minutes. Cook time: 15 minutes. Serves: 4. 1. In a small bowl, make the Ponzu glaze by combining the Ponzu sauce, half of the scallions, sesame oil, and Sambal Oelek (1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon, depending on how spicy you like it), stir well and set aside. Tip: Sambal Oelek is red chili paste made with a little vinegar and garlic, which is a staple among Thai and Malaysian dishes. Use a little to bring a mild spice, or add more if you enjoy some authentic heat. 2. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium-high heat until hot and add the peanuts and ginger with a pinch a salt, if desired. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant and slightly browned. Transfer to plate lined with paper towel to drain excess oil. 3. Wipe the pan, return to the stove, and heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Dry the shrimp with a towel, season with salt and pepper if desired, and cook shrimp for 2-3 minutes, tossing occasionally. Add the Ponzu glaze to the pan and stir to coat the shrimp. Continue until the sauce reduces slightly and the shrimp are cooked through, about 1-2 minutes more. 4. While the shrimp cooks, heat Basmati rice in the microwave, according to package directions. To serve, divide Basmati rice and pickled carrots among 2 plates. Top the rice with glazed shrimp and sprinkle each with the ginger peanut crumble and scallions.
