      Thanks Chloe!

      Can’t believe this recipe is surfacing again. I tried it once and threw it away after one spoonful. If you like super salty food then this recipe is for you. Scroll to the comments at the end before you try this recipe. Sorry but that’s the truth.

    LOVE this, Julie! I’m crazy for Chinese recipes, and this one looks gorgeous. It’s a great idea to serve it over quinoa instead of rice. I’m going to try try that next time!

            Hi Julie,

            Did you ever look into this recipe and see why quite a few commenters (including myself) had a bad result? Are the measurements all accurate? Please follow up because the photos do look good, but it came out salty, sludgy…

            Thank you very much! I look forward to hearing back.

  • Lara


    This recipe looked so great when I found it on Pinterest, and we made it for dinner tonight. I feel like I did something wrong because I followed the measurements exactly and my quinoa and shrimp were swimming in way too much liquid once I added the sauce. We had to scoop everything out with a slotted spoon. Help!

    • Hanna


      The exact same thing happened to me! Not sure why…..

  • Jared


    There must be a mistake in this recipe. Massive quantities of soy sauce (3/4 cup!?) and balsamic vinegar (1/3 cup?), compounded by quinoa in stock? Salt much? Though doubtful of these absurd measurements and flavor profiles, I still followed this recipe to a tee. I figured I must be missing something. I should have trusted my intuition. I ended up with a black, soupy sludge of shrimp and quinoa that bore the overwhelming taste of beef jerky. Beware of all the “looks yummy!” comments. Try actually making it. Not yummy. Not at all.

    • Ali


      Sad to say, I agree. This recipe looked so promising. I’m not sure if I did something wrong. It came together so easily but was so salty and soupy. Haven’t had a flop in awhile so maybe it just needs some adjustments.

      • Nicole


        I’d also have to agree with the too salty comment, found that my sauce did not thicken at all and was left with far too much. I could have easily doubled the quinoa to help balance out the saltiness of the dish. Would attempt the receipe again with many modifications.

        • Jade


          Julie,
          Did you ever look into this?! I’m wondering why this makes such a sludgy mess.
          Thank you!

  • Heather Lynn


    The recipe definitely does not work in the stated proportions. I am going to make a second batch of quinoa and add more shrimp. By diluting the sauce with a little low salt chicken stock and the additional ingredients, I think the recipe should be great. The ingredients are a wonderful combination of flavours, but was just way too intense!

  • Bertha


    Just tried this recipe and it’s just too salty. Sadly, I won’t try it again.
