I cooked this dish today and it was the first time I cooked Quinoa. Went very well. Didn't get any Coquille St. Jacques so I made it with Tiger Prawns instead. It was just perfect.
Toasted Quinoa Salad with Scallops & Snow Peas
From EatingWell: March/April 2009
This scallop-studded quinoa salad gets an exciting texture from crunchy snow peas, red bell pepper and scallions. Feel free to substitute shrimp or thin slices of chicken for the scallops.

Made this dish because I had some leftover seared scallops from a family dinner. It was very tasty and I like it even without the scallops. I will definitely be making it again. Great also because quinoa is a good source of protein on it's own.
I would love to make this but my son is allergic to sesame. Any recs for a substitution?
I really loved this dish, at first I was a little bit skeptical because I never had quinoa before trying this meal. There were two things I did not have in my kitchen, canola oil nor rice vinegar. Even without them both, it was still great. Im so happy I've tried this dish!!! Plus, quinoa came out prefectly..
I subbed in chicken and sugar snaps. I browned the chicken in another pan and once the quinoa was done toasting and the garlic was added, I added the chicken to boil with the water. Chicken turned out tender and the veggies were great. I wanted to add a sweet component to counteract the salty and added ~1/4 cup apricot jelly and it came out great.
