Shrimp Saganaki

Opa! Here’s a winning Greek recipe to add to your repertoire. It uses a simple ingredient list, is a breeze to make and so so tasty. Serve it with crusty bread – the sauce is perfect for bread dipping, or straight up (shameless) slurping – or add a grain like orzo or couscous to the mix. We were hungry and impatient so we made the whole dish over the stove, but once you’ve topped the concoction with feta, you can also transfer to a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees until the sauce is nice and bubbly.

1 bag frozen shrimp
4 oz  feta, crumbled
1 large can plum tomatoes (juice included)
1/2 onion, diced
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp parsley
Salt & pepper

Sauté  the onions over olive oil
Add the shrimp and lightly sauté
Add the tomatoes (and juice) and sprinkle the oregano
Bring to a boil and simmer until the sauce thickens, ~10 minutes
Sprinkle parsley, top with feta and simmer for another 10 minutes (here’s where you could transfer to the oven)
Add salt and pepper to taste
Cheers! (stin eeya mas if you really want to get in the Greek spirit)
