Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Add 6 cups water and 1 tsp salt to a medium pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, trim green beans. Roughly chop half the dill (all for 4 ppl). Zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lemon into wedges. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Add green beans, tomatoes, 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) and half the garlic to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Roast in the middle of the oven until veggies are tender-crisp, 8-10 min.
Meanwhile, add orzo to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 6-8 min. Reserve 2 tbsp pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain and return orzo to the same pot, off heat.
Meanwhile, pat salmon dry with paper towels. Sprinkle lemon zest over top, then season with half the garlic salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then salmon. Pan-fry until golden-brown and cooked through, 3-4 min per side.**
Add reserved pasta water, dill, remaining garlic, remaining garlic salt, 1 tbsp lemon juice and 1/2 tbsp butter (dbl both for 4 ppl) to orzo. Season with pepper, then stir to combine.
Divide orzo, salmon and roasted veggies between plates. Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
