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
  • For even more Mediterranean flavor, try adding 1/4 cup of chopped kalamata olives wiith the tomatoes.
  • This saucy dish is great served over rice or pasta. Zucchini noodles and spaghetti squash also make delicious bases, and are low-carb, too.
  • Like it spicy? Try adding a pinch of crushed red pepper with your other seasonings.

      Loved it! I made it just as recipe states, did add a small pinch of red pepper flakes because I like that tiny bit of heat. Delicious and very quick & easy!

      I’ve made this many times. It’s easy, quick & delicious. I really hate feta so I substitute Parmesan.

      Sounds delicious, but...how much Feta Cheese? Or do you just add as much or as little as you wish? Once again, Taste Of Home screws up!!

      This was amazing! Served it to my fiance who couldn't stop raving about how good it was and made me promise to make it again. I used red wine instead of white and I added some asparagus for extra veggie fiber and it was delicious. Thank you!
