Shrimp and Quinoa Patties
Serves: Makes 8 patties
  • ½ Orange Bell Pepper, diced (or other color of your choice)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 24 large cooked shrimp, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa, cooled
  • 85g Feta cheese, crumbled
  • ½ cup flaxseed meal
  • ½ cup fat free plain Greek Yogurt
  • ¼ cup (2) egg whites
  • 2 whole eggs
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp Sambal Oelek
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir, and let sit for a 20-30 minutes and form into eight patties.
  2. Heat a little bit of olive oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties, while making sure there is some room between each of them and cook until the bottoms are deeply browned, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Carefully flip the patties with a spatula and cook the second sides for 7 minutes, or until golden.
  4. Serve immediately with fresh greens, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and white balsamic vinegar.
  5. The quinoa mixture keeps nicely in the refrigerator (in fact, it benefits from that) for a few days; you can cook patties to order, if you prefer.
  6. The patties are also excellent cold, or can be reheated in the microwave or in a partly covered pan over low heat.
