Place the quinoa and water in a medium saucepan over high heat and bring to the boil. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, reduce the heat to low and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and set aside to cool completely.

Put grill on high, place fritters on baking paper and grill for 5 minutes on each side.
In the meantime, crisp parma ham (optional) under the grill alongside the fritters, turning half way.
