    I’m trying to find the recipe for the Zesty Sriracha Shrimp. When I click on the page, it only shows pictures of the meal. How can I get the recipe?

    • Julie Evink


      • Tonya

        Thanks, I apparently didn’t scroll down far enough! :)

        • Julie Evink

          Glad you found it :)

          • Shane

            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

          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.
