Shrimp with Garlic, Tomatoes, and Feta Cheese #WeekdaySupper

Sunday Supper Movement
Sunday Supper started with a mission to encourage people to come back to the family dinner table at least once a week. But that is not what we are all about, there is so much more. So this year we started a Weekday mission where every day of the week someone posts a simple week day meal recipe.

On the surface it might seem like I have it all together when it comes to meals and planning but trust me I don’t. There are some weeks I am so busy that I get to the end of the day and have no idea what is for dinner. So I too need inspiration for quick, simple meals for the craziness of the week.

This week I am so excited to share with you what is now a new family week day meal favourite. I created last week and for the first time in years we have actually repeated a meal 3 times a little over a week. It is so simple to throw together and the flavours in this dish work incredibly together.

Shrimp with Garlic, Tomatoes, and Feta Cheese

750g (1 1/2 lbs) shrimp (or prawns), peeled and deveined
1 tsp fine salt
1 tsp paprika
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp dried oregano
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved*
1/4 cup white wine
(6 oz) feta cheese, coarsely crumbled
chopped fresh basil
*I have done this twice now, ones with regular tomatoes quartered and it does work best with cherry tomatoes


Toss the shrimp with the salt, paprika in a large bowl. Spray olive oil in a pan and saute garlic and oregano over medium heat, stirring, until garlic is golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add shrimp and cook over medium high heat, turning occasionally, until shrimp are opaque, about 2 minutes.

Add cherry tomatoes and wine and cook over medium-high heat until tomatoes are warmed through and shrimp are just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Remove skillet from heat, then gently stir in feta cheese and sprinkle with basil. Serve over couscous or with a salad.
