Combine soy sauce, powdered peanut butter, lime juice, water, and garlic powder in a bowl. Set aside.
Season shrimp with salt and pepper. Turn a skillet to medium-high, spray with cooking spray, and sauté shrimp for 4-5 minutes until pink and cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside.
Spray pan again with cooking spray, reduce heat to medium, and add veggies. Sauté for 5 minutes until slightly softened but still crisp.
Add sauce to the pan, and sauce with veggies until thickened for about 2 minutes.
Add shrimp back to the pan, and toss with veggies and sauce.
Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro, and serve with rice, cauliflower rice, or spaghetti squash to properly soak up the sauce.
