The quinoa comes out perfect in this recipe. I could not find miso paste anywhere(2-Raley's, Trader Joes and Nugget Market, nada)but it tastes great without that ingredient(used seasoned rice vinegar. I just stir fried the shrimp in a seasoned skillet no grill needed! Serve cold or slightly warm it was great either way!

My family loved this it was very simple to make. Made the quinoa in the morning and the shrimp just before supper.
