- Chilled Quinoa Salad
- In a small saucepan, bring chicken stock to a boil; add the quinoa and simmer over medium-high heat for 12 minutes or until all of the broth is absorbed. Remove from the heat, cover and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff quinoa with a fork and refrigerate.
- Once the quinoa is chilled, add garlic oil, lemon juice, zest, red onions, parsley, mint, tomatoes and cucumber; toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow flavors to combine.
- Baby Arugula Salad Garnish
- In a bowl, combine arugula, feta, kalamata olives, lemon and olive oil.
- Seared Belize Shrimp
- Season the shrimp with seasoning on both sides.
- Heat a large sauté pan or grill over medium-high heat; add the olive oil. Place the shrimp in the pan or on the grill and sear for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Carefully turn shrimp and continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes more or until shrimp is fully cooked.
- To serve, place the chilled quinoa salad on a plate and top with 4 shrimp. Place the baby arugula salad on top of the shrimp; serve immediately.
