This recipe is so simple but so good! It is nice to have recipes like this handy for nights that you do not have a lot of time to cook. Also it is a recipe that you can easily keep all the ingredients on hand so that you will be prepared in a moments notice. I have now enjoyed this dish with fresh made bread, on top of rice and on top of pasta. It never lets me down.

Baked Shrimp in Tomato Feta Sauce

Yield 4-6 Servings
Ingredients
1 tablespoon olive oil (992055)
1 medium onion, chopped (990195)
2 cloves garlic, minced (991057)
29 ounces of diced tomatoes (990307)
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dried dill (CQD040) or dried thyme (CQT041)
1 to 1 1/4 pounds medium sized raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (tail on), thaw if frozen (553332)
Pinch of salt, more to taste (991861)
Pinch black pepper, more to taste (CQP065)
3 ounces feta cheese (about 2/3 cup, crumbled) (774395)

Method
Preheat oven to 425°F. Heat oil in a large, oven-proof skillet on medium high heat. Add the onions and cook until softened, 3-5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds more.

Add the tomatoes and bring to a simmer, reduce heat and let simmer for 5-10 minutes, until the juices thicken a bit.

Remove from heat. Stir in the herbs, shrimp, feta cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Place pan in oven and bake, uncovered, until shrimp are cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. Depending on the size of your shrimp it may take less time. Just be careful not to overcook your shrimp!

Serve immediately. Serve with crusty French or Italian loaf bread, pasta, or rice.
