Garlic Shrimp and Quinoa

I’m a huge fan of recipes I can prepare that only use one pan or skillet. I cook often. Lots of cooking means lots of clean-up with dishes to wash. Between meal prep, the gym, work, and a social life, I like to save time whenever I can. I saved additional time with this recipe by using Trader Joe’s Fully Cooked Organic Quinoa. Standard quinoa takes some time to cook on the stove. This is a great way to save some of that time with a product that is organic and tastes great.
