    From the Test Kitchen

    For a hearty accompaniment to our spiced fish fillets, we’re serving them over a bed of tricolor quinoa tossed with sautéed carrots, plus a layer of creamy yogurt for cooling contrast. It all gets a bright, zesty lift from a juicy orange and pickled jalapeño salsa served on top.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the salsa
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the salsa

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Peel and medium dice the orange. Roughly chop the peanuts. Roughly chop the pepper; thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the diced orange, sliced green tops of the scallions, and as much of the chopped pepper as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes.

    Cook the quinoa
    2 Cook the quinoa

    Add the quinoa to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 20 to 22 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. 

    Cook the carrots
    3 Cook the carrots

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the liquid has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    4 Cook the shrimp

    Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels (remove the tails, if. desired). Place in a large bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Stir to coat. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

Garnish with the chopped peanuts. Enjoy!
