Shrimps Saganaki with Feta
Health Highlights


1/4 tsp Black pepper (to taste)
1 1/2 cup Diced tomatoes, canned (drained)
1 1/2 cup, crumbled Feta cheese
1/4 tsp Garlic powder (to taste)
1/4 cup Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
2 tbsp Parsley, fresh (chopped)
1/4 tsp Salt (to taste)
454 gm Shrimp, raw (with shells)
1 cup White wine
1 medium Yellow onion (chopped)


Bring about 2 inches of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the shrimp, the water should just cover them. Boil for 5 minutes, then drain, reserving the liquid, and set aside.

Heat about 2 tablespoons of oil in a saucepan. Add the onions; cook and stir until the onions are soft. Mix in the parsley, wine, tomatoes, garlic powder, and remaining olive oil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened.

While the sauce is simmering, the shrimps should have become cool enough to handle. First remove the legs by pinching them, and then pull off the shells, leaving the head and tail on.

When the sauce is thickened, stir in the shrimp stock and shrimp. Bring to a simmer, and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the feta cheese and remove from the heat. Let stand until the cheese starts to melt. Serve warm.
