Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 2 bell peppers (various colors), cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 lb button mushrooms, optional
  • 1 lb cherry tomatoes, optional
  • 1 zucchini, sliced, optional
  • skewers

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, and pepper. Before adding chicken, reserve a small amount of marinade to brush onto kabobs while cooking.
  2. Place the chicken, garlic and onions in the bowl, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours or overnight (best!).
  3. Preheat the grill for high heat. Drain marinade from the chicken and vegetables, and discard marinade. Thread chicken and vegetables alternately onto the skewers.

Lime Shrimp and Quinoa Salad

   

Lime Shrimp Quinoa Salad

  • Servings: 6
  • Time: 45 minutes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1-3/4 cups chicken broth (could use vegetable broth or water)
  • 15oz can corn, drained (or 1-3/4 cup fresh or frozen-then-thawed corn)
  • 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

For the Lime Shrimp:

  • 3/4lb (12oz) raw peeled and de-veined shrimp
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup tequila, optional
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper 

For the Chili-Lime Vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt and pepper
    Directions

    1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan then add quinoa and place a lid on top. Turn heat down to medium-low then simmer until quinoa is tender and broth has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork then transfer to a large bowl to cool slightly.
    2. For the Shrimp: Whisk together all ingredients except shrimp in a large bowl then add shrimp and marinate for 10 minutes. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat then mist with olive oil or nonstick spray. Add shrimp, being careful not to crowd the pan (may need to do 2 or 3 batches,) then saute for 1-2 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Add to bowl with cooked quinoa.
    3. For the Chili-Lime Vinaigrette: Combine ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid or in a small bowl then shake or whisk to combine and set aside.
    4. Add corn, black beans, avocado, red onion, and cilantro to the quinoa and shrimp then drizzle with Chili-Lime Vinaigrette. Toss to combine then taste and adjust salt and pepper if necessary. Serve warm or refrigerate and serve cold.
    Note – For the entire recipe you’ll need 3 limes.
