Instructions

  • Cook the quinoa as directed on the package. I actually used a bit less water called for in the instruction.. Once it is done, let them cool completely.
  • Preheat your wok or skillet. Melt the butter. Add in the diced onions and cook until it's soft, about 5 minutes, add in the fresno peppers, stir fry for another 3 minutes. Add in the green peas corn, cooked lobster tails and stir again for about 1 minute. Add in the cooked quinoa and stir to mix everything. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
