I’m so happy to be partnering with the National Salmon Council and DeLallo Italian Foods to bring you this amazing dinner!

The trials of being a food blogger is that often times you don’t make the same meal more than once or twice. During the week I usually test recipes then on the weekend I prepare it again for the whole picture taking, video making gig. So my family gets the same dish twice, back to back typically, then it vanishes into thin air. Never to be seen or heard of again. It’s kind of a sad thing especially when the husband’s eyes light up and he exclaims his delight in a meal, then just as fast his face crumbles and he realizes he probably will never eat this again. So sad, so true.

Rough life he leads huh?

But when a dish shows up frequently on my menu then you know it’s a winner! Like as in give me a fork and I’ll eat the entire pan because it’s that good type of winner. Therefore I present you with “THAT” amazing dinner! This Light Italian One Pot Salmon & Orzo Recipe is the dinner that I will go back to time and time again and already have! I mean what’s not to love about it?

First of all it’s a One Pot Wonder! That’s right. One pot and you are done because I don’t know about you but I truly despise dishes. I fell in love with this recipe a bit more when I made it a One Pot Meal!

Secondly it’s good for you! That’s right it’s full of deliciousness and still good for you. Do you see that Salmon in there? Salmon is AWESOME for your heart and we all want to take care of that vital necessity don’t we? Now, you have the time to do that with this recipe! Did you know Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S.? No good, no good at all! One of the best ways to combat this deadly disease is through healthy eating and health eating doesn’t have to be complicated! I don’t have time for complicated and neither do you, so I brought you this recipe so you could focus on eating better for your heart in the month of February which is American Hearth Month and beyond! One of the best ways to combat this deadly disease is through healthy eating, which includes the consumption of fish high in omega-3s, like salmon at least twice a week. I know you’ll be coming back for more of this just like me!

Third. It’s got pasta. We all love pasta! This dish is full of DeLallo’s delicious Organic Whole Wheat Orzo. Are you like me and go a little nervous when you saw those words, “Whole Wheat” in front of pasta? I assure you that you’ll never know it’s whole wheat! Yes, I know sometimes Whole Wheat leads to a different texture and usually you can find my hubs wrinkling up his nose but he never even said anything! He was to busy eating. Score!

    Never cooked with orzo before, and now that I made it I don’t know why – it’s so tasty!

  • Jennifer @ Show Me the Yummy


    Gimme, gimme, gimme! Orzo is my favorite. 🙂

  • Carole from Carole's Chatter


    Hi Julie, this would be a super contribution to Food on Friday: Mediterranean Food over at Carole’s Chatter. Please do bring it over. Cheers

  • Rachael Yerkes


    I love the idea of adding salmon. I forget how amazing salmon is. This looks seriously good. And that orzo! Mmmm.

  • marcie


    This is right up my alley — I love one pot dinners and I can never get enough salmon!

  • Nancy | The Bitter Side of Sweet


    This is my kind of dinner! Love the use of one pot!

  • Jamie Sherman


    Salmon is my favorite fish and I love that you used it in a skillet meal!! I know this will be a hit with my family!!

  • Cathy Trochelman


    I LOVE salmon, and so do my kids! This sounds flavor-packed and sooo delicious with the orzo!

  • Deb A


    I love the one-pot dinner wonders! and I hear ya about not making the same meals! It’s a blogger’s life 🙂 This is looks great and would disappear at our place.

  • sharonjo


    This recipe is a winner! I made it exactly as written, and it turned out perfect–plus it was easy and only one pan to wash (yay!) We warmed up leftovers for dinner this evening, and it was just as good the second time around. This goes into the “make again” file.

    • Julie Evink


      I’m so glad you enjoyed it and thank you for letting me know!

  • Alexandra


    I made this for dinner the other night and it was delicious plus my husband loved it. Instead of Parmesan I put feta cheese which was really nice 🙂
