-2 cups fresh snow peas
-1 TSP olive oil
-1 pink grapefruit, segmented
-16 larger tiger shrimp, defrosted
-1 TSP butter
-2 garlic clove, minced
-1/2 cup red quinoa
-1 cup water
-1 TSP cayenne pepper
-1/2 cup chopped scallion greens or chives
Place quinoa, cayenne pepper and water in a pot, bring to a boil, cover and simmer on medium heat for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from heat. Meanwhile, add the butter and garlic to a saute pan over medium heat. In a separate saute pan over medium high heat, add 1 TSP olive oil. Add the shrimp and snow peas to their saute pans at the same time. Stir the snow peas frequently, but only flip the shrimp once, salt and peppering beforehand. Don't overcook the snow peas, as they should be bright green and slightly snappy. The shrimp will be pink and opaque when done. Remove from heat and add the snow peas to the quinoa with 4 TBSP of the vinaigrette. Place in a serving bowl, do the top with segmented grapefruit and make a well in the center of the mix. Add the shrimp and dust the top with chives. Serves 4.

-1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice
-3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
