I love a good one dish meal—so many fewer dishes to clean! Plus there is something lovely about making something in a skillet and casserole and serving is tableside. This Greek Roasted Shrimp with Olives and Feta from TK member Marie was to die for. The tomatoes became richer and sweeter as they cooked slowly and the saltiness from the feta and olives was the perfect balance. It was even delicious room temperature the next day.

To make it you will need: olive oil, shallots, garlic, white wine, canned diced tomatoes, tomato paste, dried oregano, lemon zest, salt, pepper, peeled and deveined shrimp, Kalamata olives, feta cheese, bread crumbs, and Italian parsley.

Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 15 minutes until it is bubbling and much more dense.

Remove from the oven and squeeze the lemon juice from the zested lemon over the top.

Then sprinkle with a good dose of chopped parsley.

You’ll want to scoop this right out of the skillet and eat it. Or get some crusty bread and use that as your spoon, it is absolutely delightful. Visit Marie’s lovely website Little Kitchie for other wonderful recipes!

Description

Tomatoes, olives, oregano and feta provide a zesty sauce for gorgeous roasted shrimp!

Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil, Divided
  • 2 whole Shallots, Diced
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ⅓ cups White Wine
  • 14-½ ounces, weight Canned Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons Tomato Paste
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano, Minced
  • 1 whole Lemon, Zested And Juiced
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • ¾ pounds Shrimp, Peeled And Deveined
  • ⅓ cups Kalamata Olives, Halved
  • 5 ounces, weight Feta Cheese, Crumbled
  • ¾ cups Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 3 Tablespoons Italian Parsley (minced)

Preparation Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the wine and bring to a boil, scraping the pan. Cook for about 3 minutes, until the wine has reduced about halfway. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, lemon zest, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Remove skillet from the heat and place the shrimp in one layer over the mixture in the skillet. Sprinkle the olives and feta over the entire thing. In a small bowl, mix the bread crumbs with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, then sprinkle over shrimp-feta-tomato mixture.

Transfer skillet to oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, squeeze the lemon juice over the top, and sprinkle with parsley. Enjoy over quinoa, rice, or pasta, or simply serve from the skillet with a good hearty bread.

Delicious! I didn’t have shrimp, but it worked just as well with boneless, skinless chicken thighs. The sauce is wonderful.

Catching up from back to back vacations and just saw this – beautiful!! A must make!!

So dreamy! I can imagine using couscous to replace the bread crumbs. Or even chunky crusty bread to sop up all the sauce. What a revolutionary dish! To me at least. :-)

All of the feta! I can’t handle it – the salty briny yumminess sounds SO good right now!
