in a bowl, combine all ingredients for shrimp and mix together.  add shrimp to marinade and let sit for about 30 minutes.  heat a sauce pan to low heat and pour shrimp and marinade into pan and cook for about 4 minutes until shrimp is pink.  (I added some cooked chicken to the mixture as well for a friend that doesn’t care for shrimp!)


to serve, scoop quinoa into a bowl and then shrimp mixture on top with some sauce from the shrimp.  add more soy sauce if needed! enjoy!!
