How to Make It

Step 1

In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients except the kosher salt and puree until smooth. Transfer the rub into a large baking dish. 

Step 2

Rinse & pat the squab dry and season the squab with kosher salt and place on to the rub, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove from the refrigerator and let the squab stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling. 

Step 3

In a skillet over low-medium heat, add olive oil.

Then add the uncooked Orzo, and mix well to coat the pasta in the oil.  Stir continuously until the pasta is lightly golden brown, about 4 minutes. Next, whisk in the water or broth, and bring to a low boil.

Then reduce the heat to low, cover and let simmer until all of the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

Step 4

Prepare a grill for medium heat. Grill the Squab till medium rare. 

Place grilled squab breast over cup of orzo. Use fresh herbs to garnish. Serve & Enjoy.
