Recipe developed by @Mallory.RDN


1.Add millet and water or stock to medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until all water is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes.
2.Make the salsa: Combine peaches, cilantro, mint, shallot, lemon juice and jalapeno in a bowl and mix together. Season to taste with kosher salt.
3.In the base of a medium bowl, whisk together the garlic powder, ground sumac, Aleppo pepper, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and olive oil. Add shrimp to bowl and toss with the olive oil-spice mixture. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp, in a single layer. Cook, turning the shrimp once, until they just begin to turn pink and opaque, about 5 minutes.
4.Assemble dish by spooning some millet onto each plate or bowl. Top with shrimp, salsa and any juices with the salsa. Sprinkle with feta. Garnish with a bit of cilantro or mint, if desired.

Sumac is a citrusy, ground spice that brings a pleasantly tart hit to this shrimp bowl. All components of this meal come together while the millet cooks, which means you’re 20 minutes away from a delicious weeknight dinner!
