Garlic shrimp Greek style

Garlic  Shrimp Greek style 

This is a lightning quick seafood dish that embodies all the flavours of the spectacular island of Santorini plus a little feta from the north of Greece all in perfect balance. What my youtube video for a little bonus trick to pump up the flavour.


1/2 lb. shelled, deveined shrimp (raw, medium) (225 gm) tail on 

grated zest of 1 lemon, 1 orange 

3 tbsp. olive oil (45 ml)

Sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste 

1 clove garlic, sliced 

1/4 cup Assyrtiko dry white wine (60 ml)

1 Tbsp. capers (15 ml)

6 cherry tomatoes, cut in half  

60 gm good quality feta cheese, crumbled 1/4 cup 

fresh chopped dill  and parsley


In a medium bowl, combine the shrimp, grated citrus zests, salt and pepper.  Toss to combine.   

Heat a heavy medium skillet dry over  medium high heat. When hot, drizzle in the olive oil, add the shrimp mixture and toss rapidly for 1 - 2 minutes , just until shrimp turns pink. Add garlic, white wine,  capers and tomatoes and  toss for a further minute or two to fully cook shrimp and reduce liquid slightly. Sprinkle with fresh parsley, dill and feta and adjust seasoning. 

Makes 4 servings.
