Description

The yummiest Baked Shrimp with Feta and Grilled Sourdough! Bubble up some feta, garlic, shrimp, and tomato sauce in a pan, grill some buttery crispy bread, and dunk that right on in. The simplest fancy-ish dinner!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 14-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lb. uncooked shrimp
  • 8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • fresh chopped parsley and lemon wedges for serving
  • 68 thick slices of sourdough bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter for the bread

Instructions

  1. Sauté the veggies: Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium high heat (I like to use a wide, shallow Dutch oven). Add the shallot and bell pepper; sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Make the tomato sauce: Turn the heat down. Add the tomatoes, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, and broth; simmer until the sauce reduces and gets a little darker in color, about 10 minutes.
  3. Grill the sourdough: While the sauce simmers, grill your sourdough. Melt the butter, brush it on the bread, and grill in a pan (ideally a grill pan) until crispy and golden brown. Wrap in foil and keep warm in the oven.
  4. Add the shrimp: Add the shrimp into the tomato sauce in a single layer. The shrimp will cook right in the sauce – keep on the heat for about 5 minutes, flipping the shrimp once, until the shrimp are no longer translucent.
  5. Broil: Turn the broiler on. Sprinkle feta on top. Transfer to the oven and broil for 5 minutes or until the feta is browned. Serve with a sprinkling of fresh parsley. Serve with grilled sourdough and juicy little lemon wedges.
