Shrimp
  1. 1 ½ oz grilled shrimp
  2. ¼ cup olive oil
  3. ½ tsp salt
  4. 1 tsp ground black pepper
  5. Juice of 1 lime
  6. 1 tbsp red pepper flakes (optional, adds an extra punch)
Salad
  1. 2 ½ cups cooked quinoa
  2. 1 ½ cup 1-inch mango cubes (about 2 mangos)
  3. ¼ cup shallots (minced)
  4. ¼ cup mint leaves (roughly chopped)
  5. ¼ cup parsley (roughly chopped)
  6. 8 cups mixed greens
Lime Vinaigrette
  1. 4 tbsp olive oil
  2. 2 tbsp fresh lime juice (about 2 medium limes)
  3. ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  4. 2 tsp raw honey
  5. Salt & pepper to taste (we used ¼ tsp each)
Instructions
  1. To cook the shrimp, preheat a grill or pan on medium heat. Coat the raw shrimp evenly with the olive oil, salt, and peppers. Place the shrimp on soaked skewers and cook the shrimp for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until pink. Once cooked completely, take the shrimp off of the skewers and cover on a plate with tin foil.
  2. After cooking the shrimp, make the lime vinaigrette by whisking the ingredients in a small bowl. Then, combine the quinoa, shallots, mango, herbs, and half of the lime vinaigrette in a large salad bowl. In another bowl, toss the mixed greens with the remaining half of the lime vinaigrette. To serve, place a generous serving of the quinoa on top of a bed of the mixed greens. Add the shrimp on top of the salad, and enjoy!
