Cook the orzo like rice, paella-style, on the stove, then top with fish, and bake. Feel free to substitute salmon for any flaky white fish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Melt butter in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 cup sliced green onions and 1 tsp. garlic; sauté 4 minutes or until tender. Stir in broth, next 4 ingredients, and 1/2 cup parsley. Bring to a simmer, and cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, 15 minutes or until orzo is just tender and some liquid remains in skillet. Remove from heat.

Step 2

Sprinkle fish with desired amount of salt and pepper. Place fish in a single layer on hot orzo mixture, and cover skillet.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 10 to 25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. (The bake time will vary depending on the thickness of the fish.)

Step 4

Stir together lemon zest and remaining green onions, garlic, and parsley. Spoon over cooked fish; drizzle with olive oil. Serve immediately with lemon halves.
