Instructions Checklist
  • Bring the quinoa and chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat, and let the remaining liquid absorb into the quinoa.

  • Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, and red bell pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the asparagus, mushrooms, raisins, and ginger; continue cooking until the asparagus is tender. Stir in the shrimp, and cook until the shrimp have turned pink and are no longer translucent in the center.

  • Stir the lemon juice into the quinoa, then toss the quinoa with the shrimp and vegetable mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.

This tastes wonderful. Loved the ginger and asparagus in it. One suggestion, since the shrimp should only be cooked for a short time, saute them separately and add after adding the quinoa. I found it difficult to cook the shrimp evenly with all the other ingredients. The added reward - it is very healthy too! Thanks Diego782. Read More

This is a terrific recipe: beautifully colored easy and healthy (with one small change). Like another reviewer we only used half of the shrimp required and it was still more than enough-I was thrilled because it made the recipe healthier and more economical. I also omitted the raisins because my kids dislike "cooked raisins' but I'd like to try an adult version some time that had the raisins and some extra heat (I was thinking sweet chile sauce). This is going to become part of my regular rotation! Read More

OMG!! I made this for dinner. My husband loved it as well as I. The quinoa, shrimp and veggies mixed beautifully and the ginger and lemon set it off. I will make this again and again. Didn't have to add anything extra. Read More

I'm on the hunt lately for quinoa recipes and since I have about 5 bags of shrimp from a recent sale I thought I'd give this one a try. Verdict: yummy! I made it exactly as written except for omitting the raisins because I don't like them. Very easy to make, healthy and delicious. Next time I'll add an extra tablespoon of lemon juice to brighten the flavours up even more. My husband suggested adding a bit of chopped jalapeno (he loves the Szechwan Shrimp from this site) but he likes a lot of heat in his food. Thanks for a great recipe I'll make often! Read More

My husband and I LOVED this dish! We threw sambal oelek (vietnamese chili paste) into the oil to give it a little kick otherwise, the flavors were simple but delicious. We also used only a 1/2lb of small shrimp and found it to be enough. Read More

This was wonderful! It was my first time using quinoa and I couldn't have been happier with the results. I didn't have asparagus so I used green beans and left out the raisins since hubby doesn't like them. Wonderful recipe and very easy. Read More

Great recipe! I changed it up a bit since I didn't have some of the ingredients and I also used red quinoa to add color! Try cooking your veggies in white wine and then at the very end put in freshly chopped basil! Yum! Read More

I was in an adventerous mood this weekend so I made a couple of recipes that include some ingredients that I'm not too crazy about including red peppers and raisins. Since the only meat I eat is fish I used "Not Chicken" vegetarian broth. I also added some water chestnuts I needed to use. It was really delicious. I don't recommend omitting the raisins. They add a tiny bit of sweetness that the dish needs. Yummy! Read More

This was really good with some revisions. I omitted the raisins and red bell pepper and replaced green beans for the asparagus. This lacked a little flavor so I added a few spashes of soy sauce and some additional seasoning. Read More
