Directions

  1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil, add orzo, and cook until al dente (per package instructions). Drain and toss with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. While orzo is cooking, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large saute pan, add garlic, and cook over low heat for 1 minute.
  3. Add shrimp, a pinch of salt and pepper, and 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, and cook for 3-4 minutes, until shrimp are opaque. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  4. Bring saute pan to high heat, add wine and lemon juice (to deglaze pan), and boil for 1 minute, or until liquid is reduced by half. (Note: if you double this sauce, it will take much longer to reduce to the right consistency, not just double the time.)
  5. Remove saute pan from heat, add remaining 2 tablespoons finely chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley, stir in butter, zest, adn capers, and check for seasonings.
  6. Put shrimp back into sauce and serve on a bed of orzo.
