Pat and dry shrimp and set aside.
Place a pot on the stove, add the olive oil, and turn the heat to medium.
Once hot, add the diced onion.
Stir for about three minutes so the onion begins to soften, then add the mashed garlic, and keep stirring.
After about one minute, add the orzo, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, coconut milk, and the seasonings.
Stir for another minute or two, making sure the orzo doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan, and then add the shrimp.
Give one final stir, cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook for another 10 minutes or so. The liquid should be fully absorbed.
Adjust seasonings, add garnishes and serve! Enjoy!
