Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large stockpot over high heat. Add onion, garlic, carrots and celery, and saute until softened, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add thyme, coriander, cumin, ginger and chili flake along with the vegetable medley and cook for three minutes. Add 2 cups of chicken stock and simmer just until vegetables are tender, about 7 minutes.
In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine 1 1/2 cups water and the reserved shrimp shells. Bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes. Strain liquid into stew.
In a medium saute pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over high heat until smoking. Add shrimp and saute for 3 minutes. Shrimp should not be fully cooked. Add shrimp to stew to continue cooking.
In a small bowl, mix together peanut butter and the 1/4 cup of chicken stock with a wire whisk until incorporated. Stir in to stew.
Bring stew to a boil and simmer until shrimp are cooked through, about 2 minutes.
