    Manami's Note:

    Found this on and it is courtesy of Michele Urvater. We make rice and shrimp every few weeks, so I decided that perhaps we should use orzo and voila! ;)

    1. 1
      Saute the shallots in butter for 5 minutes or until tender.
    2. 2
      Saute garlic & red pepper flakes an additional 30 seconds to a minute. (Be careful not to burn).
    3. 3
      Add the steeped saffron in white wine and evaporate.
    4. 4
      Add the orzo and saute just enough to coat the pasta kernels.
    5. 5
      Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil and cook until the pasta has absorbed the broth, and is tender, about 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Stir in the shrimp, cover and steep just long enough for the shrimp to gently warm through.
    7. 7
      Season to taste with salt and crushed red pepper; garnish with parsley and scallions.

      This is nice! It reminds me strongly of a Catalan (spain) dish called Fideua. I added lemon and parmesan at the end, and it really needed the lemon. A nice dish! Will make again. However, as a main dish it doesn't serve 4. We were two and it wast perfect. Unless I'm a HUGE pig? THen again, maybe I am!

      So good. I didn't have any saffron or scallions but oh man it was still good. I want to eat the portion I set aside for lunch tomorrow but I'm trying not to be greedy. So good.
