My lemon feta orzo will blow you away. I served this dish to my mom and she said it’s one of the best recipes I have ever made. Although this is not traditional or even a Greek dish, it uses ingredients that are prominent in Greek cuisine such as dill, olive oil, feta, lemon juice, and brings me back home! I wanted to use traditional ingredients from the Mediterranean and make it as light and refreshing as possible. This recipe is perfect with any protein on top such as grilled chicken, kebabs, or shrimp as featured. I reserved a few tablespoons of my incredible marinade and decided to toss it in with shrimp and grill it which was the perfect way to add extra protein and make this a complete meal. This recipe is perfect for meal prep and can be made the night before. Every bite transports me to my childhood in Crete so I hope it makes it to your table too.
1 cup of orzo (200grams)
1/4 cup olive oil
juice and zest of a large lemon (1/4 cup)
1/4 cup fresh finely chipped dill
2 tablespoons honey Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
10 jumbo tiger shrimp, optional* (cooked with a little bit of the reserved dressing)
