  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat; grease grate well.

  • Prepare quinoa according to package directions, substituting chicken broth for water. Drain, reserving 1 cup chicken broth.

  • In large saucepan, stir diced tomatoes with reserved chicken broth; bring to boil. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until thickened slightly. Stir in quinoa, peas, and smoked paprika; cook for 1 minute. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, stir together olive oil, paprika, garlic, salt, and pepper; brush some lightly over red pepper and onion. Toss half of the remaining marinade with chicken and remaining marinade with shrimp.

  • Grill chicken for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until well marked and internal temperature reaches 165˚F. Meanwhile, grill sausages, turning occasionally, for 6 to 8 minutes or until well marked and heated through. Grill shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until well marked and cooked through. Grill red pepper and onion, for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until well marked and tender.

  • Chop chicken, sausage, red pepper, and onion into bite-size pieces; stir into quinoa mixture. Stir in shrimp, parsley, and lemon juice. Serve warm or at room temperature.
