Tonight’s Dinner – Shrimp with Tomatoes & Feta

Posted by reeeeeen on July 17, 2007

I REALLY wanted to post a picture of this dish, but my camera is not feeling well at the moment.  It’s a beautiful dish, and low points and full of flavor.   

4 servings
5 pts per serving (not including rice or pasta) 

1 medium onion, chopped
1 tsp olive oil
4 clove garlic clove – 2 cloves crushed, 2 cloves minced
3 cup chopped seeded fresh tomatoes
3/4 cup dry white wine
1/8 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
salt (to taste)
black pepper (to taste)
1 pound raw shrimp, shelled & deveined
3 oz crumbled feta cheese

1. Preheat oven to 450.  In a saute pan, heat oil over medium heat.  Saute onion and garlic until onions are translucent and beginning to brown, about 5 mins. Stir frequently to keep garlic from burning.
2. Add tomatoes, wine, 1/2 the parsley, oregano, cayenne pepper (if using) and salt & pepper to taste (remember, the feta is salty too!)
3. Simmer uncovered until about 1/2 the liquid has evaporated, about 15 mins over medium heat.
4. pour the sauce into a 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish and add the shrimp.  Carefully stir to coat the shrimp with the sauce.
5. Sprinkle the feta on top.
6. Bake at 450 for 12 – 15 mins until shrimp are pink and feta is lightly browned.
7. Sprinkle with remaining parsley and serve over rice or pasta, if desired.

    Hee. 🙂 Thanks!
    I tried taking it with my camera phone, but as beautiful and colorful as the dish is, it came out just looking like a blur. I’ll post a picture the next time I make it. And it WAS great, so it won’t be long.
