I made a salad with orzo 1/2 box...and 3/4 small pasta, cause i didn’t have enough orzo...
After boiling the orzo and pasta, I cooled it down to room temperature.

I added a handful of baby spinach and a handful of hothouse cucumber
with the skins on...I seasoned it with a little garlic salt and white pepper,
and dill...I dressed it with olive oil and lemon...

then I added a pound of large shrimp that I baked in the oven with a drizzle
of olive oil...and a sprinkle of garlic salt. Then I added dollops of goat cheese.
I was also going to add a little chopped scallions, but I forgot.
(400* oven for 6 minutes for the shrimp.)

I made it at 4...It on my counter right now marinating...I tasted it and it’s delicious.
I’m going to serve it with a salad.

chefs note, I fry my raw orzo in a cast iron dry fry pan until it’s brown.
I saw Bobby Flay do it once and I’ve been doing it since...

Looks great TK. Forgetting the scallions. Who cares, but on top might actually be better. Frying the orzo, perfectly acceptable, I do it often with rice and some pasta. Seldom see orzo here, people here don't know how to eat or cook. 'nought said.

Two Knots, what do you think about cheese and shrimp? For some reason it seems bad to me, but I make Fettuccine Alfredo and add Parmesan cheese, & I put fresh cooked shrimp on store bought 4 cheese pizza, if in a hurry. Maybe I'm thinking of cheddar?

I think it’s ok...shrimp parmigiana has mozzarella on it.

Yes, all white cheese is good with shrimp - not cheddar.
Feta cheese would be good too.

We only ate half of it -I’m bringing the other half to my niece
tomorrow for lunch.
