2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon cumin seeds, toasted and ground
1 tablespoon coriander, toasted and ground

Recipe Directions for Cumin Shrimp with Orzo

  1. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the orzo until done, approximately 8 minutes. Drain and toss with a splash of EVOO.

  2. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat add the butter, 1 tablespoon EVOO, the ground spices and the minced garlic. Allow to cook until fragrant, approximately 1 minute, then add the shrimp and toss to coat. Continue to cook the shrimp until fully pink, sautéing periodically for even cooking. Season lightly, remove from the heat, and set aside to cool.
