The week's recipe of Shrimp with Feta and Tomatoes was chosen by Pamela of Cookies with Boys. This was one of the recipes I was eyeing a few weeks back when it was my turn to choose the sacred recipe of the week. While it sounded good, I just couldn't decide how I felt about shrimp and feta together. I love them each separately...but together???? I really was not sure. Well let me tell you that shrimp and feta are FABULOUS together! I absolutely loved this recipe and it was so so easy to whip together on a week night. I stopped off at Publix on the way home to grab some shrimp and feta and I was good to go.
As to the actual recipe, I only used one can of tomatoes instead of the two cans called for. In place of the other can of tomatoes I used about 1.5-2 Tablespoons of tomato paste, 3/4 to a cup of white wine and then just a splash of water to ensure that there was enough sauce. Also, I used dried dill and parsley instead of fresh herbs. I reduced the amount of herbs, but really though the dried herbs along with the tomato paste gave the dish a really deep flavor. I was torn over whether to serve the shrimp over pasta or crusty bread. I decided on making a little bit of both and they were both great!! I liked the linguine because it added substance to the dish. The buttery crusty bread was great for soaking up all the tomato sauce and feta!
Thanks Pamela for picking a fabulous recipe this week! This is definitely something I will make again and again!!
