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.

"Very good and not hard to make. Didn't have any rice vinegar so used 3 parts white vinegar to 1 part water. Also added crushed black pepper to give a bit more flavour. "

A Home-Run!

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 :)

One of my favorite new recipes

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.

Delicious, healthy
Very easy and very tasty

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.

Easy to cook, light and tasty
Healthy and Delicious

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.

Need a sub due to severe allergy

I would love to make this but my son is allergic to sesame. Any recs for a substitution?
