1. Make the peanut sauce: in a bowl, combine all ingredients (peanut butter, rice vinegar, coconut milk, soy sauce, honey, ginger and garlic) until smooth, and set aside. You can use your blender for a creamier texture.

2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add raw shrimp and cook until golden, about 2 – 3 minutes.

3. Stir in crushed chili pepper, cumin, ginger, onion and cook for 1 minute. Add zucchini and soy sauce and cook for 1 minute, then add carrot, jalapeño, garlic, bell pepper and chives. Cook for 1 – 2 minutes more, vegetable should be still crunchy. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

4. To serve, spoon several tablespoons of the shrimp and vegetable mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf, taco-style. Serve along with the remaining cooking juice if you like. Don’t forget to dip in the peanut sauce — Enjoy!
