    I tried this last night. it was super easy. the only things that I modified were the amount for my bf and I. I also added half a red onion to the garlic and butter that you sautee. and i used a garlic herb flavored quinoa. The flavor was the bomb.com

    Worked perfectly I added a bit of spinach and half a tomato with the kale and added garlic to the quinoa for a little flavor but all else was the same. This recipe is quick, simple, nutritious, and yummy!

    Altered the recipe a bit by adding mushrooms and withholding water. Also used Cajun seasoning instead of red pepper flakes. Family loved it, including my son who doesn’t like quinoa! Super easy to make too. Definitely making this again!

    Excellent! Love the basic guideline as well and plan to try some of the suggested variations. Used extra garlic (we always do) and seasoned the shrimp with Penzey’s Cajun seasoning instead of using as much red pepper as called for in the recipe. Definitely want to make again!

    Not bad! I doubled the quantities, added a bit more butter, and served it with garlic chili rooster sauce.

    This turned out great! Love the addition of a kick of spicy in it. With or without it, so good. Would make it again

    Would definitely make again! No modifications made. Pretty much awesome. Make sure you the de-stem the kale first before you put the shrimp on as mine ended up light on kale
