How to prepare?

The first step to prepare shrimp salad is to defrost the shrimp by placing it in a bag marinade or bowl and pouring ½ cup of ginger-scallion into it. Now the combination needs to be refrigerated for two to three hours. Rinse the Quinoa quickly with a fine mesh strainer and leave it to dry.

Now taking a large sauté pan add ¾ tbsp oil into it and place it over low heat. Adding dried quinoa into it will enrich flavor. By stirring and tossing, toast the mixture evenly at least for 6-8 constant minutes until it turns dark and a nutty aroma arises.

Add wine and water into a small sauce pot. Bringing it to boil, stir quinoa into it. Lower the heat flame after covering the pot properly. Within 15 minutes quinoa will be cooked and ready. Till then, taking a large non-stick pan add 1 tbsp of oil into it. Add shrimp skewers by bringing it over medium-high heat.

After scorching the first sides for 2-3 minutes flip the shrimp to cook another side. Reducing the heat to medium, cook shrimps until they are warmer. This process will consume 2-3 more minutes. Fuzz up the quinoa using a fork when it is prepared. Now placing the quinoa in a large bowl add ¼ cup of ginger-scallion marinade, scallion, cucumber and cilantro onto it and your delicious shrimp salad is ready to be served. You may also order for it on many online stores.
