    This classic Greek prawn dish is baked with a tomato sauce and topped with feta cheese. Relatively quick and simple to make. This recipe goes wonderfully with rice pilaf and some crusty bread.

    1. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute onion in oil until transparent. Stir in spring onions and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 more minutes. Stir in tomatoes, wine, most of the parsley, oregano, salt and pepper to taste. Cover, and simmer gently for 30 minutes.

    I have made this twice now, and both times it's been so tasty and easy. I made half the quantity and used a 250g pack of frozen cooked prawns, and it was great.  -  31 Jan 2017


    I'm just calling this recipe feta shrimp. I used chopped fresh tomatoes without peeling them & I think it tasted fine. I guess you could use diced canned tomatoes instead as well. I reduced the temperature to 400 degrees as I used cooked shrimp instead of the uncooked shrimp. If you do this, you may want to experiment with the temperature & cooking time as you want to make sure not to cook the dish too long. You want to heat up the shrimp but not have them rubbery. I also left out the oregano as my husband isn't a big fan. Next time, I think I'll try a flavored feta (garlic/herb or tomato/basil) for a little more of a flavor punch.  -  29 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was really easy...and excellent. I would recommend it to anyone...I may add some hot sauce the next time. Try it!  -  11 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
