It never ceases to amaze us how a platter of plump, spicy shrimp can transport us to warmer climes right when we need it most. In this case, it’s smoky harissa—the versatile North African-style hot chili pepper paste—that really brings the heat. You’ll lather a quick-made harissa oil onto carrot and zucchini chunks, then onto shrimp, before roasting it all in the oven. Tender orzo, the carb of choice, will act as a tempering force to the piquant proteins, while a lemony labneh sauce provides another cooling counterbalance.

Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Juice ½ the lemon and quarter the remaining ½. Peel and thinly slice the carrots crosswise on an angle. Slice the zucchini on an angle into ¼ inch rounds. Mince the garlic. Pick the dill fronds off the stems, discarding the stems; roughly chop the fronds. In a large bowl, make the harissa oil by combining the garlic, harissa (add ½ for medium spicy), ⅔ of the spice blend and 2 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with S&P.

Roast the vegetables
On a lined sheet pan, toss the carrots and zucchini with ½ the harissa oil; season with S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, 15 to 17 minutes, until partially cooked and beginning to brown.

Cook the orzo
While the vegetables roast, add the orzo to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Cook, 10 to 14 minutes, until just tender. Thoroughly drain the orzo; rinse under running water, transfer to a bowl and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Season with the remaining spice blend and set aside in a warm spot.

Roast the shrimp
While the vegetables and orzo cook, pat the shrimp dry with paper towel and remove the shells from the tails. Toss the shrimp with the remaining harissa oil; season with S&P. When the vegetables are partially cooked, remove the sheet pan from the oven; flip the vegetables and place the shrimp* between the vegetables in an even layer. Return to the oven and roast, 5 to 7 minutes, until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through, and the vegetables are tender.

Make the lemony labneh
While the shrimp roast, in a medium bowl, combine 1 tsp lemon juice (or more, to taste; double for 4 portions), the labneh and ½ the dill; season with S&P.

Finish & serve
Divide the orzo between your plates. Top with the roasted vegetables and shrimp. Drizzle ½ the lemony labneh over the shrimp and vegetables. Garnish with the remaining dill. Serve the remaining lemony labneh and lemon wedges on the side. Bon appétit!
