Nic's Prawns & Orzo
Greek Orzo Salad with Grilled Spot Prawns
Serves: 4 | Difficulty:
½ pound orzo, cooked and cooled
1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
¾ cup kalamata olives, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons minced parsley
1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup olive oil -- best quality since it’s raw
¼ cup lemon juice
8 oz feta, crumbled (we prefer full-fat sheep’s milk feta)
1 pound spot prawns, peeled
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
For the orzo salad:
In a large bowl, combine cooked orzo with tomato, olives, parsley, oregano, garlic, olive oil and lemon juice. Season to taste. Before serving, crumble feta over top.
For the spot prawns:
In a small bowl, toss spot prawns gently with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. On a heated grill or grill pan over high heat, grill shrimp for 30 seconds each side. Spots cook quickly!
Serve spot prawns over orzo salad. Enjoy immediately, but leftovers taste pretty delicious, too!
