Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

Heat the quinoa and aromatics

Choose your heating method (for microwave option, heat just before serving): 

Our chefs think this cooks best in the microwave.

  • Microwave oven  |  4 minutes

Transfer the quinoa and aromatics to a microwave-safe dish. Place a damp paper towel over the top and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir, re-cover, and microwave 2 minutes more, until heated through. 

 

  • Conventional oven  |  20 minutes

Heat the oven to 425°F. 

Transfer the quinoa and aromatics to an ovenproof dish. Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes. Stir, re-cover, and bake 10 minutes more, until heated through.

Cook your protein

Fish

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish (skin side down for skin-on salmon or snapper) and cook until lightly browned (and the skin is crisp), 1 to 2 minutes for rare tuna and 4 to 5 minutes for all other fish. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky (or translucent in the center for rare tuna), 1 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Cut into 2-inch pieces. Wipe out the pan.

 

Shrimp: 

  • Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan. 

 

Scallops: 

  • Rinse and drain the scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan. 

 

Chicken: 

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.

 

Steaks: 

  • Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning frequently, until well browned and medium-rare, 4 to 6 minutes for rib-eyes and New York strips, 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan. 

 

Tofu: 

  • Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes. Season with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the tofu and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and just heated through, 3 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

3

Cook the kale

In the same pan used for your protein, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the kale, season with salt and pepper, and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. 

Serve

Transfer the quinoa and aromatics to individual bowls and top with the kale and your protein. Spoon over as much citrus dressing as you like and serve any remaining dressing on the side.
