Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 1½ cups quinoa
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ tablespoons rice vinegar
  • ⅓ cup organic mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne
  • 2 sheets nori
  • 1½ tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 2 ounces arugula
  • ½ medium cucumber, seeded and medium diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add quinoa and salt, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook 20 minutes, until water is absorbed. Turn off heat and steam with lid on for 5 minutes. Add rice vinegar and fluff with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare spicy mayo by whisking mayonnaise, lime juice, tamari and cayenne in a small bowl. Season to taste.
  3. Using scissors, slice nori into ½-inch strips. Stack together and cut into ½-inch squares. Stir half of the sliced nori into quinoa once it is cooked.
  4. Heat sesame oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp, and cook about 2 minutes on each side, until pink and no longer opaque. Stir in garlic, ginger and a pinch of salt, and cook for 1 minute more, until fragrant.
  5. To assemble, divide quinoa into 4 bowls. Top with shrimp, a nest of arugula, cucumbers and avocado. Drizzle with mayo, and garnish with remaining nori and sesame seeds.
