What You'll Need:
If the shrimp you bought isn't already slit down
the seam/vein, make sure to do so halfway. Wash them in salty water - think sea
water and then drain.
Heat the oil in the frying pan and then add the
onion and cook over medium-heat until it's soft. (about 5 minutes)
Add the tomatoes, salt and red pepper flakes and
once the tomatoes start to release their juices add the shrimp in.
Add most of the feta and stir to heat for about
3 minutes once the shrimp has cooked. To me, what made this so delicious was
the cheese - if you don't mind feta, try getting a seasoned one!
Transfer to a shallow bowl and top with
remaining feta. You can add parsley if you have some on hand - we didn't!
Season with pepper as needed! Then serve hot - eat and enjoy!!
Boiled Baby Potatoes with Garden Chives
1 tbsp sea salt + more for seasoning
1 lb baby potatoes
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
handful chopped chives
If you have the time to boil the potatoes go for it - but we opted for the steam fresh variety and it cut the prep time down to 8 minutes! Once the potatoes are done, toss them with the oil and herbs in a serving bowl and mix/coat them and they are read to be served.
I honestly can't say enough great things about this recipe, it was fast, easy and delicious!! I'll be making this in the near future again!!
