¾ lb. orzo
2 lbs. shrimp, peeled and deveined
½ cup lemon juice
Olive Oil
Kosher salt
Fresh ground black pepper
¾ lb. diced feta cheese
1 cup minced scallions, white and green parts
1 cup chopped dill
1 cup chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cook orzo as directed on the package. Drain and pour into a large bowl. Whisk together lemon juice, ½ cup olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Pour over the hot orzo and stir.

Place the shrimp on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Toss to combine and spread out in a single layer. Roast for about 5 minutes, until the shrimp are cooked through.

Add the shrimp to the orzo and then add the scallions, dill, parsley, cucumber, onion, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper. Toss well. Add the feta and stir carefully.

Set aside at room temperature for 1 hour to allow the flavors to blend, or refrigerate overnight. Serve at room temperature.
