Skillet Shrimp and Orzo


Here’s what I did with the rest of Captain Rob’s bargain shrimp! This recipe was just as easy as the shrimp tacos and is another great find from Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food Magazine. It’s very similar to a paella, but of course so much easier to make since it uses orzo pasta instead of rice. Paul and I were just recently remembering a time that we tried to make paella in my parent’s kitchen years ago…it was going very well until I discovered that half of the rice was black and stuck to the bottom of the pot. I’m still not sure if that pot survived the massacre. I’m also not sure if I have attempted to make real rice since that experience. I’m so much more of a pasta fan than a rice fan anyhow!

This sauce is pretty similar to the roasted tomato and capicola recipe that I have already posted about. In this case though, you let the tomatoes cook on the stove with spices and herbs and then let the orzo soak it up in the oven. Who doesn’t love a one skillet meal??

      I just noticed that I never replied to your comment! I swear I read it way back when and smiled. Thank you so much for the compliment and I’m so glad you came and took a look around! I’ve been traveling, but will be back to posting soon! : )

    Ooooooohhhhh baby that looks good. And easy! Right up my alley! I bet it would be great with some spinach and feta tossed in there too. I had shrimp last night but this is a must try! Thanks
