    1. 1
      Cut cantaloupe in half, remove seeds and discard. With a melon baler, make small balls or curls, place in a bowl, leave 1/4 to 1/2 inch wall being careful not to break through the skin. Sprinkle a little of the salt and pepper inside each cantaloupe half, turn upside down on a paper towel to drain.
    2. 2
      To the bowl of melon balls add tomatoes, bell pepper, capers, shrimp and orzo, add half of the remaining salt and pepper. Carefully stir to mix. Chill for 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
    3. 3
      In a separate bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice.
    4. 4
      Add oregano leaves to oil mixture and gently stir to coat. Leave at room temperature until ready to fill melon halves.
    5. 5
      Pour olive oil mixture over melon ball mixture and gently stir to coat.
    6. 6
      Cut a very thin slice off the bottom of each cantaloupe half, to steady them, place each on a salad plate.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle salt and pepper over the inside of the cantaloupe halves, fill with the melon ball mixture and again sprinkle salt and pepper over all.
    8. 8

      Wonderful recipe. Would also be great with a little red onion if you like.
