Shrimp
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Chop and prep all ingredients.
  3. Cucumber instructions for tzatziki sauce: You can either toss the cucumber chunks right in the blender or if you like your dressing thicker like I do, grate cucumber on a box grater and put into a strainer with a little sprinkle of salt. Let sit until you’re ready to make the dressing at least 20 minutes. When ready for it-wring out in a cheese cloth to get as much liquid out as possible then add it in.
  4. Start Quinoa using “Quinoa” ingredients following the instructions on package.
  5. Mix together all of the “shrimp” ingredients in a bowl or a baking dish.
  6. Spread shrimp out on a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil or bake right in the baking dish you mixed them in (making sure they are in a single layer) and bake 8 minutes. You could also grill the shrimp if that is easier for you at 2 minutes or so per side.
  7. While the shrimp and quinoa cook, make the tzatziki by combing all the “tzatziki” ingredients into a blender.
  8. Blend until smooth.
  9. To plate: spoon a good portion of the quinoa in the bowl, then add the shrimp, next the “bowl” ingredients and finally top with tzatziki dressing.
  10. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

A note about the feta…My first choice for feta is the kind that comes in the block and you cut yourself. While the crumbles are convenient you just can’t beat the flavor that comes from uncut kinds. That said I also love to use goat feta. It’s easier to digest, but its less flavorful in my opinion than cow feta.
