Bang Bang Betches

I made this for dinner last night and it was awesome.
 I made a few changes to the original (which is HERE)
Mine is tastier in my opinion of course!
Make it!

Paleo Bang Bang Shrimp Salad

1 lb. jumbo shrimp (raw & deveined)
2 tbs. coconut flour
1 tbs. almond meal
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tbs. coconut oil

1/2 cup coconut cream
 5 tbs. chili paste
3 tbs. sriracha ( homemade style if you're hardcore Paleo)
1.5 tbs. Organic Olive Oil Mayo ( again, homemade if you're hardcore)
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 1/2 tbs. raw almond butter
1 tbs. apple cider vinegar
juice of 1/2 lime

3 cups mixed greens
1/2 cucumber, sliced & quartered
2 carrots, sliced into thin ribbons
2 thinly sliced green onions
1/2 avocado chopped

salad dressing: 
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tbs. coconut aminos
1 tbs. fish sauce
3 minced garlic cloves (I used garlic paste)
pinch of palm sugar
1 tsp.  apple cider vinegar
pinch of black pepper

For salad, combine all vegetables and greens together in a large bowl. Stir dressing ingredients in a separate smaller bowl and pour over salad, tossing to coat.

For shrimp, rinse and pat them dry. Set aside. Combine flours with pepper and garlic powder in a shallow dish.

Heat coconut oil in a skillet or wok over medium-high heat until melted. Dredge shrimp in flour mixture and then cook in oil, 1-2 minutes a side.

For sauce, heat in a small pot until the coconut cream and almond butter are liquified and combined with other ingredients. Then toss with your cooked shrimps!

Put your dressed salad on a plate.
Put your shrimps on top of that.

Sit down and feast.
