Tasty Tuesday – Shrimp, Orzo and Broccoli

This was one of the earliest recipes I made, and the first one I tried with both shrimp and asparagus. It’s simple, quick, and very delicious. Unless you mess it up like I did this time.


Cook the orzo first. If you haven’t cooked with orzo before, you definitely should. It’s so easy and feels like you’re eating rice. Once it is drained, toss it with a little vegetable oil.


After peeling the shrimp, cook garlic in oil before throwing the shrimp in on top, and cooking until pink. If you’re using fresh asparagus or broccoli, cook that first. I was using frozen broccoli, so I decided to put it in last.


Once the shrimp and vegetables are cooked, stir in orzo, lemon juice, olive oil and basil.


Then add feta cheese, and unlike me, do not dump in too much by accident. It still tasted good, but it overwhelmingly tasted like cheese. Whoops.
