Used bass & sprayed light oil on fillets rather than on pan. Added Â¼ tsp mixed lemon & orange zest to the vinaigrette, used only 2 tbs olive oil. Light, fresh flavors. Good summer meal.

Make the doubled dressing several hours ahead and add more black pepper. This will give the flavors time to mingle.

I doubled the vinaigrette as the notes suggested and thought the meal turned out well--tasty and easy to prepare.

This is the first time I have fixed red snapper. It didn't have a lot of flavor. The Orzo was really good. Next time will add something more to the fish. A definite repeat.

My fish fell apart on the grill pan, so looked awful but tasted really good. Added extra pepper and zest from lemon and lime to pasta, gave it a little extra flavor. Paired very well with fish.

This was a wonderful dish! The orzo was just the perfect compliment as a side dish! This will most certainly be a dish I serve again.

I was looking for something different to do with shrimp, so I made this. I doubled the vinaigrette and sauteed a pound of shrimp. I followed the rest of the recipe and I served the shrimp over the pasta with the extra dressing drizzled over it. I will make this again!
