It's been awhile since I've posted, but I still have been cooking most every night. With homework though, it's hard to find the time to post on here. I'm seriously like 2 weeks behind in sharing what I've cooked. But as this journal is called "The Law Student's Cookbook", it does have to be expected that I don't have all the free time in the world to be posting on here. I guess it's a surprise in itself that I actually do cook almost every night.
This meal was super easy and was also the first time I've tried orzo. I really enjoyed it and will be trying different orzo recipes in the future!
This entry will be submitted to Presto Pasta, hosted this week by The Life & Loves of Grumpy's Honey Bunch!
Lemon Pepper Shrimp Scampi
1/2 cup uncooked orzo
1 tbsp chopped parsley
1/4 tsp kosher salt
3 1/2 tsp Brummel&Brown
3/4 lb peeled and deveined shrimp
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp black pepper
1. Cook orzo according to the packaging. Drain and place in a medium bowl. Stir in parsley and 1/8 tsp salt. Cover and set aside.
2. Melt 1 tbsp Brummel&Brown in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the shrimp with remaining salt. Add the shrimp to the pan and saute 2 minutes, or until almost done. Transfer the shrimp to a plate and set aside.
3. Melt the remaining Brummel&Brown in a pan. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in shrimp, lemon juice, and pepper. Cook for 1 minute or until shrimp are done. Serve the shrimp over the orzo.
