Not even knowing what Quinoa was before this recipe, I was pleasantly surprised how good this dish turned out. Love the taste of the whole dish together. Definitely should have dried the scallops off a little before cooking, as I didn't get them as brown as I would have liked, but this dish was amazing! Definitely one for the books :)
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.

I really enjoy making this recipe. It's not too difficult and turns out so fresh, flavorful and healthy. Easy to overcook, so it's important to watch everything closely while cooking. I do make a few twists: I add mushrooms and crushed red pepper. I also add a bit more sesame oil & soy sauce than the recipe calls for.
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.
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?
