Shrimp and Pea Orzo Salad


  • Author: Jenna
  • Yield: 8 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 8 oz  orzo  pasta
  • 1 /2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 25 oz. cans of shrimp, or diced shrimp
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 /2 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the frozen peas to the boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Scoop out the frozen peas with a strainer or spoon that has holes in it and set the peas aside in a bowl. Add in the 8 oz of pasta to the water and cool until al dente. Orzo does not take as long to cook as regular pasta does. Check it after 6 minutes to see if it is done. If you want room temperature pasta salad, don’t rinse. If you want cold pasta salad, rinse with cold water.
  2. In a small bowl combine the ingredients for the sauce. Add the mayo, lemon juice, and dill and stir with a whisk until well combined.
  3. In a large bowl, stir cooked pasta, shrimp, onions, and peas together. Add the sauce and stir until everything is evenly coated. Serve or refrigerate covered until ready to serve.
