  • making easy Shrimp with Tomato, Spinach and Feta

    shrimp feta recipe

    2 tbsp olive oil heating in a medium sized sauce pan, than add: 2 chopped roma tomatoes - cook over medium-high heat until softened Stir in: 2 cloves of garlic (chopped) 1 bay leaf salt and pepper to taste fresh baby spinach leaves (whole) to taste (I used 2 handfuls) When the spinach has wilted/cooked into the mixture, add 12-15 large shrimp and continue to cook until shrimp are cooked (fresh shrimp) or hot (pre-cooked). Pour over: 3 tbsp feta – broken up into large chunks and spread across serving dish Alternately: you could bbq the shrimp and pour the tomato mixture over the shrimp and the feta in a bowl. Serve with: slice baguette (yummy dipping potential), pasta or rice (or just eat it by itself!). adapted from the baked Feta and Shrimp recipe #59736 at
