Bring 2 cups water and 1 cup uncooked quinoa to a boil in a saucepan.

Refrigerate until cool.

This step can be done the day before

Heat ½ tablespoon coconut oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat.

Place cooked shrimp on a plate and set aside

Add remaining coconut oil into the same skillet.

Sauté onion, garlic, and ginger until fragrant, about 4-5 minutes.

Add in cooked quinoa and shrimp then add in tamari, sesame oil, and chili sauce.

Cook and stir until evenly coated, about 2 minutes.
