- Add the quinoa in a large bowl, add a teaspoon of cider vinegar and fully cover with water. Soak for at least 12 to 24 hours and drain before use.
- Add the oil, grapefruit zest and ginger in a small saucepan and apply with medium heat. Cook until it starts to bubble and remove the saucepan from heat. Let it rest to cool, strain the oil and reserve.
- In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, honey and a pinch of salt. Gradually pour in the reserves grapefruit oil while whisking constantly until well incorporated. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.
- Place the soaked quinoa in a separate pan, add ¼ teaspoon of salt and fully cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce to low heat and simmer for about 10 to15 minutes. Remove from heat, let it stand for 5 minutes and drain excess water. Transfer to a serving bowl and fluff the quinoa with fork. Stir in the segmented grapefruit, grapefruit dressing, green pepper, cilantro and scallions and gently toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.
- Preheat the grill to high and brush the grids with oil. Season the fish with paprika, salt and pepper and lightly brush with excess grapefruit oil. Thread into the soaked wooden skewers, turn grill heat to medium and grill the tuna kebobs for 3 to 4 minutes while turning occasionally. Remove from grill and transfer to a plate.
- Portion the quinoa-grapefruit salad into individual serving bowls or plates and place the tuna kebobs on top. Serve immediately.
