Peach Mango Shrimp Quinoa

Feb 25

I can never go to Costco by myself.  Do not let me do it.  When I am by myself at Costco, no one tells me that we don’t need all the extra things I put in my cart.  And no one stops me from eating every single taste test and then buying a couple of these said taste tests.

I left the store with an overflowing carts and lots of stuff we didn’t need.  But that doesn’t mean I haven’t made good use of it.  One such example is the world’s biggest container of peach-mango salsa. Great salsa but even better as a sauce with shrimp and quinoa.  Yum!

    This is an interesting combination for quinoa, and one I wouldn’t have thought of. we really like it on our house, and have found it’s a great alternative to rice. Thanks for sharing!
