Tomato and Fetta baked shrimp > recipe October 29, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Food Recipes.

4 tbs. Greek extra virgin olive oil (preferably Cretan or Kalamata oil)
4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
2 shallots, peeled and sliced
20 jumbo shrimp, peeled, de-veined
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
2 cups tomato sauce
2 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried Greek oregano
2 tbsp. white distilled vinegar
Salt and pepper
1 cup Greek fetta cheese
1/2 cup water (or chicken stock)
4 tbsp. toasted bread crumbs

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
In a large sautee pan, add 2 tbs of olive oil, chopped garlic and shallots and sautee until brown. Add shrimp and quickly sear on both sides. Add cherry tomatoes, tomato sauce, stock, herbs, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer the shrimp, 5 each, into individual baking crocks. Spoon sauce over the shrimp and crumble feta cheese over that. Transfer crocks to oven and bake for 5 minutes or until they bubble.
Remove from oven and place on serving plates. Finish with olive oil and top with toasted bread crumbs.

Fetta Cheese > A classic Greek cheese traditionally made from sheep’s or goat’s milk, though today large Greek commercial producers often use cow’s milk. White, crumbly and rindless, fetta is usually pressed into square cakes.
