Sriracha Shrimp, Coconut Brown Rice & Honey Dijon Mustard Brussel Sprouts!

I’ve been searching for Sriracha recipes for a while, something to properly depict my adoration for the ingredient.  Scrambled eggs and veggie burgers just don’t seem good enough.  I found a Chilli Crab recipe, but crab is way too expensive, therefore, we have Sriracha Shrimp…Actually Buttery Sriracha Shrimp.

Once I found that, it was an easy pairing with coconut rice (with real coconut flakes) and sweet honey dijon…something. Everything came out amazing! <3

Here are the recipes:
