Baked Feta and Tomato Shrimp

27 Dec

 

anything dish made with shrimp is usually fast and tasty.  this one was not an exception.   and better yet i usually have all the ingredients in my pantry!  YUM.   i served this over couscous and totally forgot the basil!

Baked Feta and Tomato Shrimp

adapted from dinners for a year and beyond

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for baking dish
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 cup panko
1 1/2 pounds shrimp, 21 – 25 per pound, peeled and deveined
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (15-ounce) can fire roasted tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup feta, crumbled
10 fresh basil leaves, chopped

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a small saucepan over medium heat add butter and olive oil.  When butter begins to just bubble, remove the pan from the heat and add the garlic.  Let sit for 3 – 5 minutes.  Add the panko and stir to combine.  Set aside.

Brush a 9-inch baking dish with a little olive oil.  Add the shrimp and sprinkle with the salt and pepper.  Top with the tomatoes, then the garlic panko and sprinkle the feta.  Bake for 12 minutes or until the shrimp are just cooked through.  Remove from oven and top with the basil.

        How do you think it would be if I omitted the tomatoes? B doesn’t like tomatoes. And J doesn’t like Feta. Maybe I should just make this for me and the hubby!

        i think it will be ok — but there really aren’t that many ingredients! so maybe just make this one for you and the hubby! or just put tomatoes on half of it?
