Roasted Prawns and Orzo
Adapted from a Barefoot Contessa at Home recipe by Ina Garten

Serves 6

Sea salt
Organic coarsely ground black pepper
Organic extra virgin olive oil
12 oz whole wheat orzo
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (3
4 lemons)
1 lb (about 24) Pacific Spot Prawns, peeled and deveined
1 cup minced scallions, white and green parts
1 cup chopped fresh dill
1 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 cucumber, peeled and medium-diced
1/2 cup small-diced red onion
12 ounces feta cheese, crumbled or large-diced

  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Fill a large pot with water, add 1 tablespoon salt and a splash of olive oil, and bring the water to a boil. 
  • Add the orzo and cook al dente, according to package directions, stirring occasionally. Drain and pour into a large bowl.
  • Whisk together the lemon juice, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper. Pour over the hot orzo and stir well.
  • Meanwhile, place the prawns on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to combine and spread out on a single layer. Roast for 5 to 6 minutes until the prawns are just cooked through.
  • Add the prawns to the orzo and then add the scallions, dill, parsley, cucumber, onion, 2 teaspoons kosher salt, and 1 teaspoon black pepper. 
  • Toss well. Add the feta and stir carefully.
  • Set aside at room temperature for 1 hour to allow the flavors to blend, or refrigerate overnight. If refrigerated, taste again for seasonings and bring back to room temperature before serving.
