Baked Shrimp With Tomatoes and Feta

What's for dinner? This is what we had last night.

Baked Shrimp With Tomato and Feta. This recipe is loosely based on a recipe in Eat Smart magazine with Ellie Krieger. I changed up some of the herbs to suit our taste and added a splash of good red wine.

This is my version:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 medium onion, diced

2 cloves garlic minced

Two 14.5 ounce cans no-salt added diced tomatoes, with their juice

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon basil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

splash of good red wine (about a 1/4 cup)

1- 1/4 pounds fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined

2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

Preheat the oven to 425F. Heat the oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 4 minutes, then add the garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add the tomatoes, wine, oregano, basil, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for about 5 minutes, until the tomato juices thicken.

Remove from heat, stir in the shrimp. Sprinkle the feta over the top. Bake until the shrimp are cooked through and the cheese melts, about 10 minutes.

I served mine with oven roasted zucchini sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.


  1. Penny- this dish sounds wonderful! I love the combination of feta cheese with tomato sauce - and I'm a fan of shrimp too!

  2. I love all those ingredients, I'll be on the lookout for shrimp on sale now so I can make it. I love baked zuchinni too, but I usually sprinkle it with feta and drizzle honey on, a recipe I got from my sister in law. I thought it sounded bizarre when she told me about but it's wonderful! Thanks for the shrimp recipe:>)

  3. Oh, Penny! Doesn't that look delicious! I'm be right over! ;-)



  4. Uh... "I'll" be right over. I'm still not awake yet! LOL!
