Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta to chase away the winter blues

When I saw this recipe for shrimp with tomatoes and feta I knew straight away we would be trying it.



This is another gem from the cookbook Culinary Journey to the Mediterranean. Easy and fairly inexpensive. I say inexpensive because shrimp are usually on sale here in Florida.





Having a meal like this brings an illusion of warmth and respite from the cold temps we have been experiencing.

Ingredients...........

2 TB olive oil
½ cup chopped onion
1 can (28 oz.) Italian style plum tomatoes, drained, cut up
1/3 cup dry white wine
2 tsp oregano
12 oz. medium shrimp, cleaned
1 pkg. Athenos crumbled feta cheese
2 TB chopped parsley

Directions.....

Heat oil in large skillet. Add onion and cook about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, wine and oregano. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes, or until thickened.

Add shrimp. Cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until, they are pink.

Sprinkle with cheese. Simmer 1 minute. Stir in parsley. Serve with hot cooked rice and garnish with fresh herbs if desired.

Prep time is 20 minutes. Cooking time is 12 minutes

I think this dish would chase away any blues - winter or otherwise. Actually I can't really believe you even have winter in Florida!

I ate a dish like this many times when I was in Greece - it's one of my favourites.

Happy New Year to you, Tina

Thanks Sue and happy new year to you! Seriously, you are in summer temps now, right? It is 38 F (so about 3 3 C) and I am nursing a hot coffee while the heater drones on.

Thank you Rebecca. We sure love our shrimp and while it's a summery type meal, it's welcome year round.

Thanks Caite.

Great timing! I happen to have all the ingredients in the house and was ust wondering if I could get away with delaying the grocery shopping until tomorrow. Now I can!

Pierce said...

Beth, I will certainly link to your post with the recipe when I make it.

Love the feta in this! It does look like it is a reminder of a warmer climate!

Like the heck out of this - sounds really tasty and with the salty feta against the sweetness of the tomatoes, I know it was a big hit... hope all are doing fine and your New Year is off to a good start... wishing everyone the best... give Kobe and Aja a treat and tell them they have many fans...

I love feta, but the rest of my family doesn't, so I'd need to go easy on it. Sounds really good, though. I haven't had shrimp in a long time!

Oh, my kids would love this and I'll have to wait to make it on a day when husband isn't home; he's allergic to shell fish. Looks great though.

Angela said...

Yum! My daughter would LOVE this.
