Spicy Shrimp Quinoa

As I said before, shrimp is one of my favorite foods.  I can sit and eat a plate of shrimp with no cocktail sauce and be a happy girl.  But, I am always concocting recipes in the kitchen.  Last night I concocted this one and was really happy with the results, so I decided to share the recipe with you.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!
