Cook orzo
  • Add orzo to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min.
  • Drain and return orzo to the same pot, off heat. Add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil, then stir to coat. (TIP: We love to use olive oil in this recipe!) Cover and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, soak skewers in water for at least 5 min.
Prep and make lemon aioli
  • Meanwhile, cut zucchini lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices.
  • Core, then quarter pepper.
  • Add zucchini, peppers and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to a plate. Season with 1 tsp (2 tsp) Mediterranean Spice Blend, salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  • Peel, then finely grate garlic.
  • Zest, then juice half the lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges.
  • Add mayo, half the lemon zest, 1/8 tsp (1/4 tsp) garlic and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) water to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
Marinate and skewer shrimp
  • Combine tomato sauce base, remaining garlic, remaining Mediterranean Spice Blend and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil in a medium bowl.
  • Drain, rinse and pat shrimp dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper, then add to bowl with marinade. Toss to fully coat each shrimp.
  • Drain skewers, then thread shrimp onto skewers. Place assembled shrimp skewers on a plate to bring to the grill.
  • Discard any excess marinade.
Grill veggies
  • Add peppers to the grill. Close lid and grill, flipping once, until tender, 3-5 min per side.
  • Add zucchini to the grill. Close lid and grill, flipping once, until tender, 2-3 min per side.
  • Transfer grilled veggies to the same plate to cool slightly.
Grill shrimp skewers
  • Add shrimp skewers to other side of the grill. Close lid and grill for 1-3 min per side, until opaque.** (NOTE: Don't overcrowd your grill! Grill shrimp once veggies are done if there isn't enough space on the grill.)
  • Transfer shrimp skewers to a clean plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.
Finish and serve
  • Roughly chop zucchini and peppers.
  • Add chopped veggies, lemon juice and remaining lemon zest to the pot with orzo. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
  • Divide grilled veggie orzo between bowls.
  • Remove shrimp from skewers, then arrange over bowls.
  • Drizzle lemon aioli over top.
  • Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
