Pan-Seared Herbed Shrimp Cakes

w/Shiitake Mushroom "Quinotto"

We love these shrimp cakes! Sweet, local, seasonal parsnips help bind these flavorful herb-y cakes together. We pair these up with "quinotto", a Peruvian favorite - a risotto made with the ultimate superfood, quinoa. Here, we fold it together with nutty, sautéed shiitake mushrooms for a dish that replaces calories with flavor.

  • Ate my first meal tonight. I had the orecchiette pasta with broccoli rabe, prosciutto and farm eggs.... So easy to make and this is something I would never be able to cook myself. It was delicious and a generous portion, so I will bring the rest of it to work for lunch tomorrow.

  • Living in NYC RealEats has been a 'God send' in terms of meals with my wife. Easy breezy, great, filling, is actually cheaper then ordering out. We love it and guess what? It's healthy and we are actually losing weight also. Who knew?

  • I'm a mother of 2 young boys (a 3 month old and a 3 year old!) and this meal option has really been ...great for my husband and I. I really love the quality and that it's healthy. Thank you - so far!

  • I've tried several different ready-made meal services in the last year, and so far RealEats has far ...surpassed the others in terms of balancing food quality, sustainability, price and nutrition. Plus I like that since I'm also in NY, it's not being shipped from across the country and you're supporting farms in my neck of the woods.

  • I just got my meals today! First thing I tried was the salmon and white beans. Let me tell you, I ca...nnot stand salmon because of the strong taste but this was the BEST salmon I've EVER had!! I'm so glad I found your site. I can't wait to try the rest of the meals!!

  • We just got our first order. We loved almost everything. But the absolute best part was how quickly ...we were able to eat, get the babies ready for bed and be on our couch for an hour before the grind starts again. The food is fresh and so healthy. We were throwing away so much each week. So wasteful. I can't wait for week 2. This was a game changer for our family!
