I did add more seasonings, primarily black pepper & fines herbes, but the biggest issue was the quinoa. I used a tri-color quinoa that needed closer to 2 c of water rather than 1 c. If I do this again...and it’s going to be a big if, I will cook the quinoa in a vegetable broth to add flavor.
It was very bland I love quinoa and scallops but this recipe just didn't do it for me. It was very bland and even adding more spices and sea salt did not make it any better. I think it might have been the oranges that gave it a weird taste. Maybe lemon would've been better? Pros: healthy Cons: oranges made it taste weird
