Feta Shrimp Skillet

October 18, 2010

Shouldn’t I feel more rested after the weekend?

I was kind of dragging today! It probably didn’t help that I didn’t fall asleep until after midnight even though I went to bed around 10 p.m. (I guess I had too much on my mind.) That makes for a short night when the alarm went off at 5:30 a.m.

As I was leaving work this afternoon, my brain instantly went to food because I was hungry! I was craving soup and then smiled when I remembered what I had planned for dinner. 🙂

Feta Shrimp Skillet

(Recipe inspired by the Taste of Home Healthy Cooking magazine October/November 2010 issue.)

I started by chopping a medium onion and 3 garlic cloves.

I then heated 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pan and added the onion.

After the onions became tender, I threw in the garlic.

I let the garlic sauteed for one minute, then added 28 oz. of diced tomatoes (undrained),

1/4 cup white cooking wine,

1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon salt.

After brining the mixture to a boil, I let it simmer for about 7 minutes. Next came the shrimp. Since the shrimp was already cooked, I just had to make sure the pieces were heated through. I also added 1 teaspoon dried parsley to the skillet.

Once the shrimp was heated through, we topped our dish with feta cheese!

This meal completely hit the spot! I was a little worried when it didn’t seem like there was enough ingredients, but the tomatoes and onion provided a nice heartiness to the stew and the oregano and parsley gave it a pleasant flavor. And of course the feta took it over the top!

I enjoyed a Fifteen Minute Oatmeal Scone dipped in my stew! 🙂 So delicious!

And dinner wouldn’t be complete without a little dessert. 😀

French vanilla ice cream + banana slices+ raw honey + carob chips + peanuts = the perfect combination of sweet and salty!I’m hitting the hay early tonight since I didn’t sleep very much last night!

    1. Okay, without all the onions, I would be all over that shrimp dish – yum!

      My husband and I can’t stand onions, and I protected my daughter from the onion her whole life – until she was 12 and went to a sleepover where they ordered a veggie pizza.

      Not to be rude, she ate a slice with onions on it – came home and said “Mom, onions are awesome!” It was then that she realized it was us against an onion loving world!

      Now she’s 18, and has a special onion basket, in the back of the fridge that has at all times a white onion, yellow onion AND scallions. 😀

      1. Ha! Ha! That’s great. There are quite a few onions in the dish, so if you don’t like onions, it wouldn’t be for you.

    1. you know what better than this meal? getting to eat it again for lunch.
