“Embrace the detours as they can lead somewhere special,” a friend once told me. And, those words sure did resonate with me when my daughter and I found ourselves making a detour into Savannah on our drive down to Hilton Head Island, a few years ago. It had been awhile since we had been in Savannah and seeing we were driving right by there, we figured we would stop by River Street in Savannah and get our candy on.
However, while we were driving around Savannah, we happened to pass “Uncle Bubba’s” and decided to stop there for dinner. Once inside, we took one look at the menu and began to revel in our detour! On the menu there was Boom Boom popcorn shrimp, steamed shrimp, blackened shrimp, and stuffed shrimp, among others and we decided we were gonna #ShrimpItUp in a big way that night – because we heart shrimp in a big way!
Uncle Bubba’s closed down not long after that (am hoping it wasn’t because we ate them out of all the shrimp they had). So, these days, when we want our popcorn shrimp fix met, we head to the frozen aisle at Walmart.
Now, you might not think to look for quality seafood products in the frozen section there, but that is where we grabbed a Party Size Pack of SeaPak® Popcorn Shrimp and a package of SeaPak shrimp scampi from. We heated the scampi according to package directions and added it to a salad. And you know what we did with that SeaPak popcorn shrimp? I decided to make a Creamy Kale & Quinoa Bake and add it to it – because “Everything is better with Shrimp” – right?
The creamy base in this Creamy Kale & Popcorn Shrimp Quinoa Bake is made with coconut milk, turmeric, and cumin – so it is pretty much lactose-free.
Now, you could also blend some cauliflower with the coconut milk to bulk up the veggie content of this dish – or you could choose to just use one pan and one bowl to make this one pan dinner/lunch bake that covers most of your food groups AND happens to be ready in only 30 minutes!
