Shrimp Scampi with Corn & Orzo

8 oz orzo
1 (or 2) large ear fresh corn, shucked
3 T olive oil
6 cloves garlic, smashed
1 1/2 lb large raw shrimp, peeling and deveined
1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
3/4 tsp arrowroot dissolved in 1 1/2 t cold water (or as much as you think you need)
3/4 t sea salt (or as much as you like)
3/4 t black pepper (or as much as you like)
3 green onions, white and light green only, thinly sliced
1 T lime juice

1. Cook orzo according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile, use a small, sharp knife to cut kernels off corn. Set kernels aside. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Add corn and cook until shrimp is just cooking through, 1 to 2 minutes. Add broth, arrowroot mixture, salt and pepper, stirring until liquid comes to a boil and sauce thickens. Remove from heat and stir in green onions and lime juice.
3. Drain orzo, then transfer to a serving bowl or plates. Top with shrimp mixture and serve.
