Super Shrimp Salad

This recipe is loosely based on one found here. The original recipe is packed with "superfoods". This is the first time I recall ever eating a pomegranate. 

Our internet was not cooperating Sunday night, so I had to wing it. 

1 lb shrimp, peeled and veined
2 Tbsp butter
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
Seeds from one pomegranate
15 oz can black beans, drained
handful of cilantro, chopped
2 jalapenos, seeded and diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 cup quinoa cooked in 1 to 1-1/2 c water
juice from one lime

If you look at the original recipe, you'll see I forgot the red onion and corn, and some of the dressing ingredients. 

Saute the shrimp in butter and season with salt and pepper, garlic and chili powder. 

In the meantime, prepare the quinoa in a sauce pan and prep the remaining ingredients. 

Once the shrimp is cooked, add in the remaining ingredients and stir. 

Makes about 3 lunches.
