Preheat oven to 400˚F. Fill a large pot with water, add 1 Tbsp salt and bring to a boil. Add orzo and simmer 9 to 11 minutes, stirring occasionally, until al dente. Drain and pour into a large bowl.
Whisk together lemon juice, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 tsp salt and 1 tsp of pepper. Pour over the hot pasta and stir well. Meanwhile, place the shrimp on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to combine and spread out in a single layer. Roast for 5-6 minutes, until the shrimp are cooked through. Do not overcook! Add the shrimp, scallions, dill, parsley, cucumber, onion, 2 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper. Toss well. Add feta and stir carefully. Set aside at room temperature for 1 hour to allow the flavors to blend.
