Ingredients

  • 1

    pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 3

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 1

    onion, diced

  • 1/2

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 8

    ounces orzo pasta

    can (14 1/2 ounce) diced tomatoes, drained

    cup frozen peas

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Season shrimp with salt and pepper, to taste; set aside. Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic, onion and oregano, and cook, stirring often, until onions have become translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in orzo until lightly browned, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in chicken broth and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, peas, lemon juice and shrimp. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Place into oven and bake until shrimp are cooked through, about 12-14 minutes. Serve immediately.
