HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
To marinate the shrimp, add the Honey (1/4 cup) , Lime (1) , Garlic (1 clove) , Chili Powder (1 pinch) , Salt (to taste) , Ground Black Pepper (to taste) to a bowl with the Shrimp (1 lb) . Place in the fridge until needed.
Step 2
For the quinoa, add Water (2 cups) and Curry Powder (1 Tbsp) to a small sauce pan. Stir to combine. Add Quinoa (1 cup) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and allow it to sit for 15 minutes, so it can absorb the liquid.
Step 3
Meanwhile, add the Sunflower Seeds (1 handful) to a baking sheet and place under the low broiler for 3-5 minutes or until toasty.
Step 4
Place a grill pan over the stove and crank the heat to medium-high. Add the Corn (1/2 cup) and Red Bell Pepper (1) and cook 5 minutes, flipping around the pan until charred.
Step 5
Place the quinoa, peppers, corn, Avocado (1) , and sunflower seeds in a bowl.
Step 6
Wipe off the grill pan, then reheat the pan at medium heat. Place the shrimp 1/2" apart on the grill pan, pouring the marinade over. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side, or until pink and no longer opaque. Add to bowl with quinoa.
Step 7
For the dressing, whisk together light Light Olive Oil (1/4 cup) , Chili Powder (1/2 tsp) , Garlic (1 clove) , juice of one Lime (1) and lime zest if desired. Season with Salt and Pepper (to taste) and pour over quinoa and toss.
Step 8
Garnish with Fresh Mint Leaves (to taste) for a refreshing twist! Serve and enjoy!
