When I am short on time, shrimp is one of my favorite things to eat since it cooks up in under 5 minutes. All you need is some delicious sauce and you have an amazing meal in no time. This dish is a lower carb version of Firecracker or Bang Bang Shrimp, which is a sweet and spicy dish that is delicious. The sauce is sweet, spicy, and creamy and with the sweetness of the shrimp, it is one delicious meal. You could also make it with chicken, pork, or even tofu.
