  1. Dry the defrosted prawns, mix in the minced garlic, lemon zest, coriander & sumac & pepper.
  2. Cook the quinoa, once its cooked mix in the frozen peas, stir well and put the lid back on.
  3. Prep the salad ingredients. Slice the segments of the grapefruit and place it in a small bowl. In a hot wok, fry the asparagus in some oil, then pour over any excess grapefruit juice, this should only take a minute (you want to keep them crunchy). Tip the cooked asparagus onto a serving platter.
    Now fry the prawns, toss them in oil and fry until cooked.
