Cheesy quinoa mini-muffins topped with shrimps dusted in Indian spices?

Yes, please!

You don’t need a mini-muffin tin to make this, btw.

You do need quinoa, however. And cheese. Glorious, glorious cheese.I used 2 cups of cooked quinoa (Psst, my recipe card at the end of this post has a foolproof way to cook quinoa every time).

You also need an egg and a bunch of whatever fresh herbs you have in your kitchen.

I used tarragon:

Mixy-mix everything:

Scoop *a heaping spoonful* of the quinoa mixture into a mini-muffin tin sprayed with baking spray or form them into patties and place them on a baking sheet.

Bake these beauties at 350F for 30 mins.

Now, for the Bombay (I know it’s now Mumbai. I know.) part of the recipe. You need an equal parts mixture of freshly ground coriander and curry powder.

 Sprinkle this spice mix onto your shrimp and sauté for a few minutes on each side.

 Top the quinoa mini-muffins with a shrimp and enjoy!

It’s like a savory cheesy cupcake with shrimp frosting!

I don’t think that’s a good description!

Why am I screaming?!

 These are two-biters but I one-bit the shit out of them.

You could also stick a toothpick in them if you like to surround yourself with people who don’t like to get their hands dirty.

If you know what I mean 😉

I don’t know what I mean.
