Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • Salt and pepper
  • 12 ounces medium or large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Preparation

  1. 1. Warm oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add quinoa; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  2. 2. Add 2 1/4 cups water and 1/2 tsp. salt to pan. Turn heat to high; bring to a boil.
