Added both honey and coconut milk to the shrimp and it was freaking scrumptious!

Tamia Wead

The orzo and shrimp is good would even tell you to put some avocado slices into it too.

Leona Eghbali

This was so nice and easy to make I didn't add too much shrimp though and mixed in some chicken bits too.

Nathalia Staeheli

Tossed in some chili spices too so I could make it slightly spicy turned out perfectly.

Jemma Ringold

DON'T buy frozen shrimp, you should get it fresh from the market for this meal or it will taste funky.

Ariya Sclafani

It was so good!! I am in love with this orzo shrimp recipe.

Fantastic meal for lunch or dinner any time of the week if you love seafood I'd even recommend adding some crab to this.

Yareli Vanholland

Used sunflower oil instead of olive oil and turned out just the same.

Natalya Longo

Sooo tasty can't get enough of it, I used fresh shrimp and mixed in more veggies.

Akira Sarcona

Shrimp is kinda slimey for some reason so would recommend watching which type of shrimp you buy.

Adilene Pay

Never thought I'd like this as much as I did, even added a bit of hot sauce to it.

Addalynn Scarpati

Obsessing over this amazing orzo with feta and shrimp, it taste too good to be true.

Laylah Etuk

I'd recommend adding some coconut cream to this or it'll end up being sort've dry but other than that it's tasty.


Tasty but the pork orzo is so much more flavorful and filling than this.

Really easy to make and very tasty would even give it 10 stars if I could but I guess 5 will have to do.

Kaleigh Lemert

Zesty and flavorful perfect lunch for me it's already my favorite cause I'm making it more than once in a week haha.

Sailor Mahaffie

Decided to go with freshly sliced tomatos insteaad of sundried to make the meal more juicy.

Micah Gopez

You should for sure make this It's delicious and a total crowd pleaser, my family enjoyed it a bunch.

Instead of orzo I used normal penne pasta because the orzo just wasn't enough for me and the family but the recipe was awesome.


So delicious and healthy!
