Instructions

  1. Prepare orzo according to directions on package, drain (I recommend tossing with just a little olive oil). 
  2. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat to about 400 degrees. Meanwhile, chop ingredients for salsa.
  3. Brush both sides of the salmon fillets with 1 Tbsp of the olive oil and season both sides with salt and pepper. 
  4. Brush clean grill grates lightly with olive oil then place salmon on grill (close lid) grill until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
  5. In a medium mixing bowl toss together tomatoes, cucumber, red onions, kalamata olives, garlic, avocado, feta, lemon juice, 2 Tbsp olive oil, parsley, and oregano. Season with salt to taste.
  6. Divide drained orzo among 4 plates then add a salmon fillet to each plate. Top each serving with plenty of the salsa, both over the salmon and the orzo. Serve immediately.
