Spicy Garlic Shrimp

For the quinoa:
tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
teaspoon chili powder
190 grams (1 cup) uncooked quinoa
salt and pepper
500 ml (2 cups) vegetable broth (I used my vegetable stock powder)
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped

For the shrimp:
tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
225 grams (1/2 lb) raw shrimp, tail-on
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
teaspoon chili powder
salt and pepper

You will also need:
fresh parsley. finely chopped
the juice of half lemon


In a fine-meshed strainer, rinse the quinoa under cold running water.
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until the onion softens slightly.
Add the quinoa and teaspoon of chili powder. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Sautee for 1 minute then add the broth.
Bring to a boil uncovered. When it starts to boil, reduce the heat to the lowest setting, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is cooked and tender. Remove from heat, add the parsley and mix well.
While quinoa is cooking, cook the shrimp.
Heat tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add the shrimp and sprinkle with teaspoon of chili powder. Season with salt and pepper and sautee until no longer translucent.

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.
Mix the quinoa and shrimp together, drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley. Serve the spicy garlic shrimp and quinoa immediately, while still hot.
Have a wonderful day.

Wings tonight for Game 6.....go Cubbies!!

Sueanne, do you use the solid coconut oil that smells like coconut (virgin, I think?) or another "liquid" kind when you cook with it?

Kell I use the organic coconut oil that is virgin not refined. At room temperature it is liquid when refrigerated it is solid. I like to add it to dishes at the end so it doesn't loose its flavor. Adding it to cold smoothies hardens it up into little pieces of crunchy coconut. I do add it to the pan when cooking scrambled eggs so they don't stick plus they taste good too. Find the food washes off the dishes easier with out sticking.

Used my Nuwave air fryer to make a boneless chuck roast again. Cooks both sides at the same time with hot air circulating. Also made roasted potatoes & kale. Comes out so delicious & smells so good with barbecue seasoning powder.
