Cooking for 4 people


  • Kingsford® Signature Flavors Basil Sage Thyme Flavor Boosters
  • 1 red pepper
  • green zucchini
  • red onion
  • 8 oz. cremini or baby bella mushrooms
  • spray oil
  • kosher salt
  • 2 lb. peeled large shrimp
  • 6 cup cooked quinoa


  • 0.25 cup olive oil
  • 0.5 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. grated ginger

1 Food Prep

  • First, prepare the vegetables.

  • Cut the pepper into 8 large pieces, discarding the seeds. Slice the zucchini and squash diagonally into half inch pieces. Peel the onion and slice it into wedges. Then, slide the mushrooms and onion pieces onto skewers for easy handling during grilling. Spray all the veggies with some oil and season with kosher salt.
  • Next, thread the shrimp onto skewers for easy handling during grilling. Then, spray the shrimp lightly with oil and season them with kosher salt on both sides.
  • Finally, in a small mixing bowl, combine the dressing ingredients, whisk to emulsify, and set aside.

2 Grill Prep

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Start by cooking the vegetables, 4–6 minutes per side until softened and charred, then remove them from the heat.

  • Place the shrimp skewers directly over the coals, and cook for 2 minutes on each side, until the shrimp reach an internal temperature of 145°F on a digital meat thermometer. Then remove them from the grill.

  • Assemble the grain bowls by dividing the cooked quinoa between four bowls.
  • Top the quinoa with the grilled vegetables, then push the shrimp off the skewers and add to the bowls.
  • Pour some of the dressing over each bowl. Serve and enjoy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great option for protein! I'm not eating meat for health reasons & shrimp & quinoa is great for protein items. Shrimp cooks fast and they could become dry and chewy if not careful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flavor Boosted Everything about this dish, besides the quinoa, was amazing. But I just don't like quinoa, so no fault to the recipe. Otherwise, the flavor boosted, plump, juicy shrimp were soooo good, as was the rest of the dish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMGoodness So Good! I’m not sure if I’ve ever had this specific rice or anything with rice vinegar in it before. I bought all of the ingredients because it peeked my interest. I can’t believe how absolutely delicious this was! It was SO good!! Even though I like my veggies softer, they totally worked this way. The dressing was absolutely fantastic! I ended up using twice the amount on my dish. I’ll definitely be making this again & again.
