Romano's Macaroni Grill Teriyaki Salmon With Spinach Orzo

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. ~Salmon~.
  2. Dip salmon in soy sauce, then the oil and place the salmon on hot grill silver side up.
  3. Grill salmon evenly until done, approximately 6-7 minutes.
  4. Ladle 2 oz teriyaki glaze over each salmon fillet while still on the grill.
  5. ~*Orzo*~.

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.

My favorite dish at Macaroni. I added 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper to orzo and got the "bite" I remember from the restaurant. Thanks.

This was delish! A great way for fish loving me to please my non-fish loving husband at the same time. I followed this recipe using shrimp & salmon for me, and chicken for him. The spinach orzo complemented the meal nicely. This is a keeper for sure!
