DIRECTIONS

  • Place large pot of water on a burner and bring to a boil for the orzo.
  • In a strainer placed over a bowl, toss cucumber, tomatoes, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and let drain for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat grill.
  • Cook orzo until JUST done, about 12 minutes. Drain. Rinse with cold water and drain well. Toss orzo with the 1/3 cup oil, lemon juice, 1/3 cup dill, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  • Coat salmon with 1 tablespoon oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Grill salmon, skin-side up, for 4 minutes. Turn and sprinkle with the 1 tablespoon dill and lemon zest.
  • Cook salmon until golden and just barely done (the fish should still be translucent in the center), about 3 minutes longer.
  • Serve salmon on top of the salad.
