I felt that it needed more quinoa, the last few shrimps I've had were somewhat bare. It's an interesting recipe, however if you are looking for something different.

Yummy stuff! I used a lot of quinoa to batter, and used Egg Replacer in place if the eggs. The egg replacer made it take a while for the crust to set, so I finished in the broiler which made it all nice and crunchy despite my overcooking the quinoa.

Dh positively raved about these! We especially liked that they were oven-fried, because DH doesn't care for the greasiness of fried foods, and I don't like frying on the stovetop because it makes the whole house (and my really long hair) smell like grease. This was perfect because it offers the satisfying crunch of "fried" coating without the odor or excess oil. I really enjoyed the quinoa, too -- this was my first time trying it. The sauce was so eye-catching with it's vibrant green color, and it was the perfect accent to the shrimp. I just know that DH is going to be requesting these again soon. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT4 Zingo

These chicharrones were muy bueno! I felt like I was eating an authentic Peruvian dish. The quinoa was a great breading for the camaron and the aji sauce was extremely flavorful and a perfect pair. LOVED this dish. Served this as an appetizer. ZWT4 with the Babes in C/South America
