Meal Prep: Thai Shrimp & Chickpea Salad

 Thai Shrimp and Chickpea Salad with Peanut Dressing

This week was the first at my new internship! I was so excited at the oppurtunity to try meal prepping and finally have a use for it. For lunch this week, I made chickpea and shrimp Thai salads and I packed along with me: baby carrots, hard boiled eggs, protein bar, caramel rice cakes, and cocoa roasted almonds!

I pour my dressing into a container in the morning, grab my salad, throw in my snacks and I’m out the door!

Here are the ingredients in the salad:

  • Spinach and spring mix
  • Cucumbers
  • Celery
  • Bean sprouts
  • One can chickpeas
  • One bag shrimp

For the dressing, I used a Bangkok peanut dipping sauce but feel free to use your favorite!

Drain the chickpeas and defrost & peel the shrimp. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and add spice. I used paprika, cumin, and chili powder. Bake at 375F for about 20 minutes, stirring halfway. Let cool and divide into tupperware.

    Never would have considered adding chick peas to a Thai prawn (thats what we call them in Australia) salad. It seems like a great way to add some protein and make the salad more filling. Thanks
