Feta Shrimp Skillet

On our honeymoon in Greece, my husband and I had a dish like this one. I tried to re-create the flavors in this recipe when we got home. When I make it now, it brings back such wonderful memories. —Sonali Ruder, New York, New York

Test Kitchen Tips

  • Like it spicy? Try adding a pinch of crushed red pepper with your other seasonings.
