    Title: Shrimp Scampi w/Orzo
    Categories: Seafood, Citrus, Chilies, Vegetables, Pasta
    Yield: 4 Servings

    1 lb Large shrimp, peeled and
    - deveined
    3 tb Extra-virgin olive oil
    1 tb Lemon zest
    1 tb Juice
    1/2 ts Red-pepper flakes
    Salt & black pepper
    4 cl Garlic; minced
    2 tb Unsalted butter
    1 c Orzo
    2 tb Dry white wine
    2 c Boiling water, seafood or
    - chicken stock
    3 tb Fine chopped parsley

    In a medium bowl, stir together shrimp, 1 tablespoon
    olive oil, lemon zest, red-pepper flakes, 1/2 teaspoon
    salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and half the garlic. Set aside
    to marinate. (This step can be done up to 1 hour in

    Add butter, remaining olive oil and remaining garlic to
    a medium skillet set over medium heat. When the butter
    starts to bubble, add the orzo and 1/2 teaspoon salt and
    cook, stirring often, until the orzo is toasted, about 2
    minutes, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent the
    garlic from burning. Carefully add the wine - it will
    bubble - and stir until absorbed, about 1 minute. Stir
    in water, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until orzo
    is al dente, about 12 minutes.

    Add the shrimp in a snug, even layer on top of the orzo,
    cover, and cook until all the shrimp is pink and cooked
    through, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit,
    covered, 2 minutes.

    Sprinkle with parsley and lemon juice, season with salt
    and pepper, and serve immediately.
