Recipe by Jessica Kim
Whisk dressing ingredients together until combined, and set aside.
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, and add quinoa. Cover and let cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, re-cover and let sit for about 10 minutes.
If you use frozen shrimp, run under cold water and leave for about 10 minutes to drain. The shrimp should thaw out pretty quickly, or you can defrost in the fridge for a few hours.
Stir-fry shrimp over medium heat in a skillet until cooked through. If desired, pour some of the dressing over shrimp while cooking to infuse some of the flavour.
Cook edamame beans (steam, boil or microwave). Remove the beans from the pod.
Slice up green onions up to the dark green tops.
Throw the quinoa, shrimp, green onions, pineapple and edamame beans in a large bowl. Add dressing a little at a time as desired. Season to taste and garnish with sesame seeds.
