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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJbhplyVBUE
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.
