Greek-Style Shrimp With Tomatoes and Feta

I first saw this Greek-Style Shrimp dish from America’s Test Kitchen TV show, I tried the same exact recipe and it came out super delicious. This would make and a fantastic dinner item for any kitchen, Shrimp was tender and that tomato sauce with Feta added extra flavor to the dish. I have served this delicious shrimp dish with rustic bread; you can have with bowl of rice or flat bread.


1 lb shrimp, peeled and  tails off
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons ouzo (optional)
5 medium garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon grated zest of1 lemon
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1 small onion, diced medium
1 medium green bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and diced
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained, 1/3 cup juices reserved
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh parsley
6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill leaves


1. Toss shrimp, 1 tablespoon oil, 1 tablespoon optional ouzo, 1 teaspoon garlic, lemon zest, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper in small bowl until well combined. Set aside while preparing sauce.

2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in 12-inch skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion, green bell pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt and stir to combine. Cover skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables release their moisture, 3 to 5 minutes. Uncover and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until moisture cooks off and vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes longer. Add remaining 4 teaspoons garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and reserved juice, wine, and remaining 2 tablespoons ouzo (if using) increase heat to medium-high and bring to simmer. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors have melded and sauce is slightly thickened (sauce should not be completely dry), 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in parsley and season to taste with salt and pepper.

3. Reduce heat to medium-low and add shrimp along with any accumulated liquid to pan; stir to coat and distribute evenly. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are opaque throughout, 6 to 9 minutes for extra-large or 7 to 11 minutes for jumbo, adjusting heat as needed to maintain bare simmer. Remove pan from heat and sprinkle evenly with feta. Drizzle remaining tablespoon oil evenly over top and sprinkle with dill.
