1 Cook quinoa

Add the quinoa to a bowl, cover with warm water and rinse. Drain in a fine sieve. Add the measured water to a pot and bring it to a boil. Add the quinoa and a pinch of salt. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 min or until the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is tender.

2 Prep

Peel and mince the garlic. Peel and slice the shallots. Wash the lemon thoroughly and grate its zest with a fine blade, taking care to avoid its bitter white pith. Chop half of the lemon into slices. Juice the remaining half. Finely chop the fresh parsley. Chop the zucchini and asparagus (remove its woody stems) into batons.

3 Fry prawns

Drain the prawns on kitchen paper. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the prawns with a pinch of salt and cook for 2-3 min. Transfer the prawns to a plate, reserve the pan.
