Garlic Shrimp and Orzo Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Vseward Chef-V

If I have Shrimp in the Freezer, I can always come up with a dish. The other day I wanted something different for a salad. I enjoy cold pasta salads and rice salads so I decided to make an Orzo salad. Get it, orzo is rice shaped pasta.... anyway, this ended up being really good and can see how versitle it can get as well. It doesn't get any easier than this. Hope you enjoy!

We really liked this recipe and it was super quick and easy to whip up. I cooked the Orzo early in the morning so it would be nice and cold when I made the salad. I used baby shrimp instead of medium shrimp and I only used enough olive oil to coat the shrimp instead of the 1/4 to 1/2cup. It came out very well even with the changes...great recipe and healthy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Marinate shrimp in garlic and olive oil. I do this early in the morning.
  2. When ready to eat scoop shrimp out of the marinade with a slotted spoon Place in a skillet over medium-high heat and sauté for a few minutes, until the shrimp is pink and cooked through. Add a splash of white wine and season while cooking.
  3. Mix together lemon juice, and olive oil and pour over all remaining ingredients. Mix it all up until everything is coated. Season to taste.
