Directions

Step 1

Place shrimp in large shallow dish. Pour 1/2 cup (125 mL) of VH® Sweet Thai Chili Sauce over shrimp, turning so that all shrimp are well coated. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Reserving sauce from dish, thread shrimp onto 4 skewers.

Step 3

Spray grill with PAM® Grilling Spray; heat to medium-high heat. Grill skewers, basting with reserved sauce during first 5 minutes only, until shrimp are opaque, approximately 10 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, in large pot of lightly salted boiling water, cook pasta for 10 minutes. Reserving 1/2 cup (125 mL) of cooking water, drain pasta. Transfer to heated bowl. Immediately stir in tomatoes, feta cheese, remaining VH® Sweet Thai Chili Sauce and 2 tbsp (25 mL) of parsley. Stir in reserved cooking water to moisten if necessary.

Step 5

Remove shrimp from skewers. Arrange on top of orzo. Sprinkle with remaining chopped fresh parsley.
