Rinse shrimp. Pat dry with paper towels. In a small bowl, sprinkle shrimp with coriander, ginger, pepper, and nutmeg; toss to coat.
In a large wok or nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add shrimp. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp are opaque, stirring frequently. Remove to a clean bowl; cover to keep warm. Add cabbage and onion to wok or skillet and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring frequently.
To prepare Peanut Sauce, whisk together peanut butter, 3 Tablespoons water, honey, soy sauce, and crushed red pepper in a small saucepan. Simmer over medium-low heat until sauce is heated through and smooth. If too thick, stir in additional water to desired consistency. Sauce will thicken as it stands. Serve warm.
To serve rice bowls, divide cabbage mixture among four shallow serving bowls. Top with rice mixture and shrimp. Drizzle with warm Peanut Sauce.
