Preparation Time: 35 minutes
- 1 lb. orzo pasta
- 1 cup diced red, yellow, green and orange peppers
- 1 cup diced red onion
- 1 cup sliced black Californian olives
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1/2 lb. large shrimp, peeled and de-veined ( Use 1 lb. shrimp if other seafood is omitted)
- 1/2 lb. large scallops
- 16 cherry stone clams or 16 oysters may also be used
- 6 tbsp. red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp. spicy brown mustard
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1 cup olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the barbecue grill to high. While grill is heating, prepare vinaigrette and bring water to a boil over high heat in an 8Qt./ 8L Covered Stock Pot or get Pasta Maker ready.
For the vinaigrette:
Combine the vinegar, mustard and sugar in the Quick Shake® Container.
Slowly drizzle olive oil into the mixture; shake until thickened.
Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
If not using Tupperware's Pasta Maker, add the pasta to the boiling water and cook 8-10 minutes until tender. Whether using the Pasta Maker or a Pot, rinse and drain pasta in Double Colander and place pasta in Large Bowl.
Toss with half of the vinaigrette. Stir in peppers, onions, olives, and parsley.
When ready to grill, place the clams and oysters on the grill rack and cook until they open. Skewer shrimp and scallops and place on grill rack, grill 1-2 minutes per side.
Remove to a platter and discard any clams or oysters that have not opened.
Arrange seafood on top of orzo salad and drizzle remaining vinaigrette over all, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chopped parsley.
