Tips for the spicy shrimp and quinoa bowl recipe

  • We like to use large shrimp for this recipe. Opt for 16/20 size shrimp at your grocery store. They are juicier and easier to cook.
  • Because honey tends to stick to scratched pans, make sure you use a brand new non-stick pan to sautee the shrimp.
  • You can remove the shrimp’s tail if you prefer. 
  • Buy shrimp already deveined, shelled, and cleaned, your dinner prep. will be much faster. 

How and how long to keep the shrimp and quinoa leftovers?

You can keep the shrimp and quinoa in an airtight container for up to 3 days in your refrigerator.
