Romano's Macaroni Grill Teriyaki Salmon With Spinach Orzo

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ReluctantCook

A teriyaki-kissed salmon with rice-sized pasta. Had this the first time in NC and always think of my dad when we have it. I found the recipe at WBIR-10 but some of the ingredients seemed off, so I adjusted them a bit.

Made the spinach orzo, and loved it. I'm a big fan of the original dish. I cooked my salmon by a different method than this recipe, but the pasta and fish went together well. I think the pasta makes a great side dish for just about anything.
