100 grams Shrimp (peeled)
2 tsp Olive Oil
0.5 tsp Dried Oregano
0.5 tsp Dried Parsley
0.5 medium Red Bell Pepper
0.5 medium Yellow Bell Pepper
40 grams Quinoa
1 Garlic Clove
60 ml Chicken Stock
0.5 tsp Lemon Zest

Preparation

Step 1: Take out a bowl and mix shrimps with ½ the olive oil, the dried herbs, and a little salt and pepper.

Step 2: Place your quinoa in a pot with twice the amount of water, and heat over a medium temperature to cook.

Step 3: Chop the garlic and set aside. Then, slice the bell pepper into thin slices and heat the remaining olive oil in a pan next to the cooking quinoa.

Step 4: Lightly fry the bell pepper for about 4 minutes, or until the sides are slightly browned. Then, remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 5: In the same pan, over the same heat, cook the shrimp mix for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently until cooked through.

Step 6: Add the cooked quinoa to the shrimp pan, along with the garlic, and allow all to get toasty for about 1 minute.

Step 7: Pour in the chicken stock and bring that delightful mix to a simmer for about 6 minutes.

Step 8: Add in the bell pepper, the lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon juice and bring to cook for another 3 - 5 minutes.

Step 9: Garnish with the fresh basil leaves and serve up!
