Prepare this dish just before grilling so the pesto maintains its color.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill.

Step 2

Combine first 7 ingredients in a food processor. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons oil to herb mixture; process until smooth, scraping sides. Set aside.

Step 3

Thread fish evenly on each of 16 skewers. Brush fish with remaining 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Arrange skewers on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 1 minute on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from grill, and keep warm.

Step 4

Combine orzo and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss well. Place 1/2 cup orzo on each of 8 plates; arrange 2 skewers on each plate. Top each serving with about 1 tablespoon herb mixture. Garnish with parsley sprigs and lemon wedges, if desired.

This pesto is amazing. I don't bother to skewer the fish;  just broil whole fillets. We mix the pesto and orzo together and then top with the salmon. My family loves this dinner.

Delicious! I don't have a grill, so I just baked a whole salmon fillet in the oven.
