Citrus Grilled Shrimp with Rosemary Quinoa

When the weather is warm (but not scorching hot), I absolutely love grilling dinner for my family.  Being the backyard while dinner cooks, we often hear other families in our neighborhood enjoying time together outside as well as smelling what they have on the grill for dinner.  I walk around the yard, check on the garden, maybe enjoy an ice cold beer or a nice glass of wine – it is a very relaxing process for me.  

I had a box of Near East Rosemary & Olive Oil Quinoa Blend in my pantry and decided to make something with that for dinner this past weekend.  I came up with Citrus Grilled Shrimp with Rosemary Quinoa – it was delicious and a hit with my boys even.  This is a delightful summer dish and super easy to make.
