Shrimp Quinoa

Sometimes the best recipes are the ones you come up with on the fly. Like this one. I had shrimp thawed out but had NO idea what I was going to do with it and dinner really should be on the table in about 30 minutes. This is what came out of that…


  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 lb. shrimp, shells removed and deveined
  • 1 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 214.5 oz. cans diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 T dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Cook the quinoa on the stove top according to package directions.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shrimp and cook until pink.
  3. Puree the tomatoes in a food processor or small blender and pour over the shrimp.
  4. Add the garlic and spices and let simmer for about 15 minutes.
  5. Scoop some quinoa onto a plate and top with the shrimp/tomato sauce.
