Greek Orzo Pasta Salad

Greek Orzo Pasta Salad

If you've got a favorite dish that already has bold flavors and a delicious dressing covered, give it a protein glow-up with our Unseasoned Simply Shrimp. Or as we like to say at Prime Shrimp: “Put a shrimp on it!”

This mouthwatering Greek Orzo Salad checks all the boxes on its own and becomes a light and satisfying summer sensation with the addition of all-natural shrimp, cooked fresh by you right before serving.

How to Cook with Orzo

Orzo can be daunting for beginner chefs. Is it rice? Is it a grain? Is it pasta? It’s a rice-shaped pasta that can act like a grain or a noodle. That makes it incredibly versatile. You can serve it sauced with your chicken parm or plain as a side like a common grain.

A popular way of serving orzo is in an orzo pasta salad, like this one. Because the pieces of pasta are small, they incorporate beautifully with chopped vegetables, allowing an even distribution of pasta to other ingredients.

Shrimp and Orzo Pasta Salad

At Prime Shrimp, we like to think everything is better with the addition of a perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned shrimp. For a recipe like this, shrimp definitely kicks it up a notch. Shrimp is the perfect protein to incorporate into a salad because they aren’t tough to chew, and they have a mild flavor that complements a wide range of flavor profiles.

With Prime Shrimp’s boil-in-bag cooking method, you can cook your shrimp on autopilot while you prep your other ingredients, confident that they’ll come out perfectly cooked, every time.
