Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Quinoa Salad

SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP WITH QUINOA SALAD I found this recipe in the Cooking Light Magazine that I am so happy to have delivered to my house every month. They have a ton of good easy to make recipes! I usually make chicken every night so it was great to have something else for a change and the seasoning for the shrimp was so good! I didn't use the feta in my version because I am allergic to dairy, but I am sure it would taste even better had it been in there. Enjoy!
