Teriyaki Shrimp Quinoa Bowls with Mango Cucumber Salsa

Teriyaki Shrimp Quinoa Bowls

I love grain bowls. I usually gravitate to rice bowls, but I also love one with quinoa. This shrimp teriyaki bowl is perfect! To give the quinoa extra flavor, I cook it in vegetable broth, then season it with chopped shallots. While it cooks, I dice the mangoes, cucumbers and jalapeño to make the salsa and squeeze some fresh lime on top with cilantro and a pinch of salt. The shrimp only take a few minutes to cook, so when the quinoa is done, the rest is ready and it's quick to throw together.

How to Store Shrimp Quinoa Bowls

I personally don't like making shrimp too many days in advance, so I usually eat these teriyaki bowls the night I make them and eat the leftovers the next day for lunch or dinner. You can eat leftover shrimp and quinoa cold or reheat them in the microwave.


  • Grains: Rice or spelled for quinoa.
  • Fruit: Replace mango with pineapple.
  • Coriander: Hate cilantro? Skip it!
  • Spiciness: Don't like spicy food? Remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeño.
  • Gluten-free bowls: Use tamari instead of soy sauce.
  • Sweetener: Replace the agave with honey.
  • Protein: Swap the shrimp for chicken or omit them for veggie bowls.
  • Vegetables: Add halved cherry tomatoes or diced peppers for extra veggies.
