SHRIMP WITH QUINOA
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup water
1/2 lb large shrimp, peeled, cooked
2 1/2 cups snow peas, steamed, cut large ones in half
1 tsp minced fresh dill weed
2 tbsps minced fresh chives
3 tbsps fresh-squeezed orange juice
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tbsp white-wine vinegar
2 tsps olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 dill sprigs for garnish, if desired
Place the quinoa in a fine mesh strainer and hold under cold running water until the water
runs from strainer clear. This will take about a minute; drain well.
In a small saucepan bring the water to a boil and stir in the quinoa. Turn heat to low and
simmer for 15 minutes or until the quinoa has absorbed the water and is tender.
Fluff with a fork and set aside to cool.
Fluff the quinoa again and place in a serving bowl.
Add the cooked shrimp, steamed snow peas, dill and chives; gently toss together well.
In a cup, combine the juices,vinegar, oil, salt and pepper; pour over the salad.
Toss gently to coat well. Garnish with dill sprigs, if desired.
