Sardines with Red and White QuinoaPrint this Page

Serves 2 as an entrée, 4 as a side dish

1 cup White Quinoa
1/2 cup Red Quinoa
3 cups water
2 tablespoons Shallot, diced
1 teaspoon Lemon Zest
1/2 cup Parsley, chopped
A generous squeeze of Lemon
2 packages Sardines, drained
Good-quality Extra-virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt and fresh ground Pepper

In a medium saucepan, combine the quinoa with the water and bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 15-18 minutes or until light and fluffy.

Once quinoa is cooked, add the shallot, lemon zest and parsley and mix thoroughly.

Fold in lemon juice, and sardines, careful not to break up filets too much. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and serve.
