Baked Greek Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta



  • Olive oil - extra virgin, of course!
  • 3 large shallots, diced - about a cup
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced - I always use more!
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 pounds large ripe tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes - I use more.
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 4 oz. Greek feta cheese, crumbled - I use at least 6 oz.
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano - I use lots more
  • 2 tbsp. roughly chopped mint


Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Core and peel the tomatoes.

Cut into wedges.

In a wide skillet, sautee garlic and shallots in oil, adding salt and pepper - about 6-8 minutes.

Add tomato wedges, s. and p. and red pepper flakes, and cook gently, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes have softened slightly - about 10 minutes.

Transfer the above to a shallow earthenware baking dish


In a bowl, mix the shrimp with a tbsp. of olive oil, s. and p. and then arrange in a single layer on top of the tomatoes. Sprinkle the feta over this and the oregano over the feta.

Bake 10-12 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and bubbling.

Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes.

Serves up to 6.
