Foodie Friday

Friday, August 21, 2009

I’m joining in (for the first time) on Foodie Friday today. A BIG thank-you to the gracious host, Michael @ Designs by Gollum (a BEAUTIFUL blog).

Tonight's supper will be an oldie but goodie for us. On the grill, shrimp and garden fresh zucchini and tomatoes and on the side, Garlic-Butter Orzo. The orzo recipe is one that I submitted and was included in Gooseberry Patch's 5 Ingredients Or Less. A well used cookbook in my kitchen. The orzo makes a great side to many dishes but this time of year I especially like it with shrimp and salmon on the grill.

Garlic-Butter Orzo
1 cup orzo pasta, cooked
2 Tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Cook orzo according to package directions. Drain. Place orzo in a serving bowl and set aside. Melt butter in a 12" skillet over medium-high heat; sauté garlic until golden. Remove from heat; add lemon juice, stirring well. Pour over orzo; add parsley and toss.
