This dish is so delicious you won’t even believe how healthy and uncomplicated it is. Kind of like the perfect relationship.
First things first, get your quinoa going in a pot and let it bubble away (make sure to rinse it first to get rid of any bitterness). While that’s cooking, prep your veggies. Here I used fresh corn off the cob, sliced cherry tomatoes and cilantro (coriander.)
When all that prep-work is complete, get going on your sauce…this is where the flavor is. I used a recipe I found online. I didn’t have coconut yogurt so I used coconut milk and Greek yogurt. Throw all sauce ingredients into a food processor or blender and watch the green goodness transform before your eyes.  Use any extra as salad dressing. Yum!
When all your ingredients are ready, last but not least, cook your little shrimpies in a skillet. I seasoned mine with this rad Cajun seasoning that I use on everything from seafood, to potatoes. I love it- just go easy as it’s a little on the salty side.

Once the little pink dudes are cooked you can create your bowls!

Start out with quinoa on the bottom, then a generous smattering of sauce, add the veggies and then lastly the Cajun shrimp. I’m making myself hungry….
