Skillet Shrimp and Orzo

Prep: 15 mins
Total: 35 mins
Serves 4

Directions

  • 1Preheat oven to 400°, with rack in top position. In a large broilerproof skillet, heat 5 teaspoons oil over medium. Add garlic and cook until just beginning to brown, 1 minute. Increase heat to high and add tomatoes; season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 minutes. Add orzo and broth and bring to a simmer. Cover, transfer to oven, and bake until liquid is mostly absorbed, 10 to 12 minutes.
  • 2Toss shrimp with 1 teaspoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Remove skillet from oven and place shrimp on top of orzo. Heat broiler. Broil until shrimp are opaque throughout, 4 minutes. Sprinkle with basil and serve.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups halved grape tomatoes (about 1 pound)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3/4 pound orzo
  • 3 1/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, torn

Cook's Notes

Look for orzo near the other dried pastas. It's also great in brothy soups or tossed with herbs for an easy side.
