Ingredients

For the Quinoa:

  • 2 cups vegetable broth chicken broth, or water
  • 1 cup quinoa rinsed and drained
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For The Toppings:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 batch of Marinated Grilled Shrimp or Honey Lime Grilled Shrimp (or substitute with an 11 ounce package SeaPak Lighthouse Selections Marinated Shrimp)
  • 1 medium zucchini chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 yellow summer squash chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 avocado diced
  • Extra lime juice for garnish
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish

Instructions

Prepare the Quinoa:

  • In a large pot, bring broth (or water) and quinoa to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender (about 15 minutes). Remove from heat, keep the pot covered, and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and stir in garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper (to taste).
  • While the quinoa is cooking, prepare shrimp according to recipe (or package) instructions.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté zucchini, squash, bell pepper, and corn for 3-4 minutes, or until the veggies are just crisp-tender (but not mushy). Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

To assemble bowls:

  • Fill individual bowls with prepared quinoa. Top with shrimp and veggies. Garnish with diced avocado. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the bowls, garnish with cilantro (if desired), and serve.

Notes

  • Cooking just for two? Cut the ingredients in half! The rest of the cooking instructions remain the same.
  • Cook the quinoa in broth instead of water for extra flavor
  • You can add any veggies you prefer
  • Try brown rice instead of quinoa
  • Make this in advance and take on picnics, work lunches or serve at barbecues
  • I've offered a few different shrimp options here, but you can substitute with any cooked shrimp that you prefer.
