Seared Salmon Fillets with Orzo Pilaf

Time: 30 minutes.

Technique Tip: Toasting the uncooked orzo first helps the pasta retain its texture.

Serve with Garlic Broccolini: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil; swirl to coat. Add 1 pound Broccolini, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces; sauté 2 minutes. Add 4 thinly sliced garlic cloves; sauté 2 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water to pan; cover and cook 2 minutes or until Broccolini is crisp-tender. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt.
