1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on
1/2 cup finely diced tomato, drained in a colander for 5 minutes
2/3 cup coarsely grated hard feta cheese (If you leave feta cheese uncovered in the refrigerator overnight, it will dry a bit and can then be easily grated.)
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 F.
In a large skillet, heat the oil and sauté the onion over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until soft.
Add the pepper flakes and garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.
Add the shrimp and sauté for 2 minutes, or until they start to become firm.
Add the tomato and salt to taste and cook for 2 minutes more, or until the sauce begins to thicken.
Transfer to a baking dish or four individual gratin dishes.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly; sprinkle with the cheese and bake for 2 to 3 minutes more.
Sprinkle with the parsley and serve (with a bottle of Greek wine).

Serves 4
