salmon with orzo mediterranean meal

Servings: 2 Prep time: 10 min Cooking time: 20 min


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Orzo (dry, preferably whole wheat)

  • 1 cup Broccoli (chopped)

  • 10 ozs Salmon Fillet (cut into 4 fillets)

  • 1/4 tsp Salt (divided)

  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper (divided)

  • 1 1/2 tbsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil (divided)

  • 2 tbsps Parsley (chopped)

  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest

  • 1/2 Lemon (juiced)


Directions

  1. Cook orzo in water according to package directions, adding broccoli for the last minute of cooking. Drain and rinse with cold water.

  2. While orzo cooks, heat a small amount of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Pat salmon dry and sprinkle with half of the salt and pepper.

  4. Add to the pan, skin-side up, and cook until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until the flesh is opaque, 3 to 5 minutes, depending on thickness.

  5. Whisk the remaining oil, herbs, lemon zest, lemon juice and the remaining salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the cooked orzo and broccoli; stir until combined.

  6. Serve the orzo mixture with the salmon. Enjoy fresh or as meal prep.

 
Notes:
  • Leftovers: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days.

  • Other Herbs: Use any chopped fresh herb in place of parsley, such as tarragon, chives, or cilantro.

  • Gluten Free: Use quinoa in place of orzo.
