I would love to share the recipe with you. It is very simple, tasty and healthy.
2 1/2 cups quinoa
5 cups water
1 bunch scallions, sliced
1 cup raisins or currants or craisins (or a mix!)
2 1/2 tbsp. curry
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
juice of 1 lemon
1/8 - 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Combine quinoa and water in medium sized pan. Bring to a boil and turn heat down to low. Quinoa will be cooked in 15 minutes. (I basically cook quinoa like I would rice on the stove. The quinoa to water ratio I use is 1:2.)
Put cooked quinoa in a large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Can be served warm or cold.
You might want to adjust the seasonings a little depending on your taste preferences.
Garlic Grilled Shrimp
1 lbs of cleaned shrimp (20 - 30 count is best)
3 cloves mashed garlic
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 chopped cilantro
2 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
fresh cracked pepper to taste
juice of 1 lime
I put everything but the lime juice in a bowl and let it marinade for at least an hour. Put the shrimp on skewers and squeeze fresh lime juice on top before grilling. Then just put it to a grill or grill pan and once the shrimp turns pink, they are done. Turn them only once. When serving, serve with a wedge of lime and top with a little bit more cilantro.
A nice leafy salad and you have yourself a very nice, healthy dinner.
