Salmon Orzo Pasta Salad


  • 4 servings of orzo
  • [1 tablespoon of olive oil]
  • 2 organic salmon fillets
  • [Sea salt + black pepper, to taste]
  • 2 cups of fresh, roughly chopped spinach
  • 1/3 cup of chopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup of a good-quality store-bought lemon vinaigrette


  • Cook orzo according to package instructions.
  • In the meantime, add the olive oil to a pan, and heat it on medium-high for 2 minutes.
  • Pat your salmon dry with a paper towel, then season it with a little sea salt.
  • Add the salmon, skin-side down, into the oiled pan, and cook for 4-5 minutes per side or until it’s opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
  • Let the salmon rest for 5 minutes, then flake it into bite-sized pieces; drain the orzo and rinse it with cold water to quickly cool it.
  • Add the orzo to a large serving bowl, then add the spinach, red onion, salmon, lemon vinaigrette, plus salt and pepper. Toss it, then serve.

Tip: If you don’t plan to serve it right away, set aside a little extra vinaigrette to re-dress it before serving!
