Skillet Suppers: Shrimp with Orzo, Feta and Asparagus


[Photographs: Yasmin Fahr]

I have to admit that I probably ate two-thirds of this recipe by myself, then sat there for a few minutes trying to figure out if this orzo dish could reasonably feed four people or if I just completely outdid myself. (I'm going with the latter.) I think this recipe can feed four with appetizers or a side dish, as long as these four people have a moderate amount of self control.

This light, refreshing, simple dish combines some of my favorite ingredients: shrimp, feta and asparagus. (Anyone else love asparagus?) While I went with whole-wheat orzo, feel free to use regular orzo. Also, you can add grape tomatoes to make it a little saucier. Season the shrimp with dried oregano before cooking it to go with the Greek theme of this recipe.
