Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 3/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon honey
  • 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 package (6 ounces) portobello mushrooms, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion

Sprinkle shrimp with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, saute shrimp in 1 teaspoon canola oil for 4-6 minutes or until shrimp turn pink; remove and keep warm.
In the same skillet, saute mushrooms and red onion in remaining oil for 5-8 minutes or until tender. Return shrimp to the pan. Add bean sprouts, cilantro and basil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until heated through.
