    TIP: I’ve learned that in every 1 cup of uncooked quinoa – you’ll need 2 cups of water, and this – you’ll have 3 cups of cooked quinoa. So, that’s where I measure how much water or quinoa I need when I want to cook quinoa.
  2. In cold water bowl; rinsing the prawns, pull off the head, peel the shell, and cut off the legs. Set aside.
  3. In medium heat pan, saute the prawn for about 3 minutes each side or until prawns turn pink, seasoned with mixed spices (1 tsp to 1 tbsp), stir. Set aside.
  4. In the same pan low-medium heat, add 1/2 tbsp of sesame oil – saute the onions, garlic, and cherry tomatoes for about 2-3 minutes.
