Shrimp Santorini
Christina’s first time enjoying this dish was at an open-air restaurant in Fira, the main city on the island of Santorini. Under a beautiful sunset, she noshed on succulent shrimp accompanied by rich, tangy tomatoes topped with feta cheese. The Greeks have been teaming seafood with cheese for thousands of years, so the old adage of not combining the two need not apply here. You’ll love this recipe!

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400℉.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the shrimp with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the salt, and season with black pepper.
  3. In a medium oven-safe skillet over medium heat, heat the remaining 4 tablespoons of olive oil.
  4. Add the onion and season with salt. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until translucent.
  5. Add the garlic and black pepper. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring, until soft.
  6. Add the tomatoes, red pepper flakes, and oregano. Sauté for 10 minutes. (If your skillet isn’t oven-safe, you can turn the tomato mixture into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.)
  7. Arrange the shrimp and olives (if using) over the tomato mixture in one layer.
  8. Crumble the feta over the surface.
  9. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the shrimp are a medium-pinkish color and the cheese is a bit browned. Don’t overcook the shrimp.
  10. Remove from the oven and garnish with parsley.
