Garlic Butter Shrimp and Quinoa is one of my favorite easy go-to meals, especially for lunch. It only takes 10 minutes to prepare and I can customize the amount, making just one for myself or 4 for the whole family.


Our days are usually packed with work and activities. Lunch needs to be quick, easy and wholesome. Even when I am low on time, I pride myself on preparing home cooked meals for my loved ones and not resorting to other alternatives. Garlic Butter Shrimp is one of their favorites! Hubby calls it my “fancy lunch” since it looks like it takes a lot of time to prepare and is so pretty!

Garlic Butter Shrimp uses only 7 ingredients, many of which you will already have in your pantry, and takes only 10 minutes from start to finish. I try to catch large bags of frozen shrimp on sale at the market, so I can take out only what I need and let the rest remain frozen. Ten minutes, foodie friends! You just can’t beat that time!

I like to serve my Garlic Butter Shrimp over new Minute® Ready to Serve White & Red Quinoa. Quinoa has hit the food scene and it is hot! While many believe quinoa is a grain, it is actually a protein packed seed originating in the Andes mountains. It comes in several colors and is a versatile ingredient, serving as a blank slate to soak up whatever flavor profile you put in its path.

My husband and I love fast and easy meals — because it’s just the two of us — and we’d love to spend less time cooking — and more time enjoying the meal. Great idea here with the minute rice too.
