"My husband's two favorite things are shrimp and quinoa. One night I combined the two into a fantastic 20-minute dish that tastes like a very light but flavorful fried rice. The recipe will serve 4 to 6 as a side dish, or makes two big bowls if served as a main. You can add ginger, extra veggies, chicken, ham...the possibilities are endless!" — My4NonBlondes

green onions, sliced
peeled and deveined shrimp
thawed frozen peas
soy sauce, or to taste
toasted sesame oil
I changed the recipe a little. I did not use the corn or peas and added garlic. It turned out great. Very good flavors and my husband loved it!! The soy and sesame oil gives it that pop!!
Excellent! I added just a splash extra of the sesame oil and soy sauce. Very good!
Very tasty! I am not personally a huge fan of the texture of Quinoa however this is a delicious, easy and healthy way to serve it up. I used olive oil instead of canola and left out the peas and cilantro (HATE cilantro). Definitely a keeper!
This was incredible! I did make some changes though, I did not have green onions so I used half of a regular onion. Then I did not have corn so I couldn't add it. I also only had a peas and carrots frozen mix. I used olive oil because that is all I carry. I also added about a tablespoon of ketchup with the soy sauce. It came out perfectly! Thank you so much for sharing this!
Will definitely make again but next time will cut the corn and peas in half. I will also add the onion (vidalia, not green) later than suggested since I prefer my onions al-dente in dishes like this.
Tried this tonight - I didn't use toasted sesame oil as I did not have any. Also added an egg and scrambled it up in the mix before adding the shrimp. With the addition of some dried chili flakes for a bit of bite, it wasn't bad!
