Tasty Eats | Shrimp Saganaki

Shrimp Saganaki
When reading through the Newlywed Cookbook, mind you I have never read a cookbook before, it wasn't the name of the dish that caught my eye, but the ingredients that went into it. This was easily one of the top 5 meals that I have ever made and it was incredibly easy and not labor intensive in the least! 

What You'll Need:

1/2 lb peeled shrimp
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 oz. feta - I used President Feta Crumbled with sun dried tomatoes and olives
1 large bulb fennel or 1 large onion, thinly sliced - I used the onion
6 small ripened tomatoes- I used cherry tomatoes 
salt + pepper
red pepper flakes



Cooking directions:

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. 
Shrimp Saganaki
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!! 

Paired with:

Boiled Baby Potatoes with Garden Chives
Boiled Baby Potatoes
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!! 

Have you ever tried this recipe? Are you a fan of Mediterranean food?
