Enjoy this Cajun Shrimp and Quinoa Casserole Recipe by @_growinglittlehumans. We used Ancient Harvest Ready to Heat Sea Salt Quinoa to make this dish.

Prep Time: 20
Total Time: 35

Ingredients

¾ lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 medium tomatoes, cut into chunks
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
½ cup chopped sweet onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp tomato paste
3 tbsp olive oil
2 ½ tsp Cajun seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
2 ½ cup cooked Ancient Harvest Ready to Heat Sea Salt Quinoa
1 cup shredded fontina cheese
Fresh cilantro for garnish

Directions

Toss the shrimp and 1 tsp Cajun seasoning together, set aside.
Toss the tomatoes with 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp Cajun seasoning, set aside.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat in a cast-iron skillet (or any oven-safe skillet).

Cook the shrimp until opaque, about 2-3 minutes per side.

Remove from the pan and set aside.
Add the remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil to the pan along with the onion, jalapeno, and garlic.

Cook until the onion and jalapeno are tender, stirring often. Mix in the quinoa, tomato paste, ½ tsp Cajun seasoning, and tomato chunks.

Top with the shrimp and then sprinkle with the fontina cheese.
Place in the oven and bake at 350F for 15 minutes.

During the last 2 minutes, turn on the broiler to high and broil until the cheese is slightly brown and bubbly.
Garnish with fresh cilantro, serve and enjoy!
