Serves: 4-6
  • 1 pound 16/20 shrimp, cleaned, deveined, shells removed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ⅓ dry white wine
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp salt and pepper
  • 2 cans crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup kalamata olives
  • 1 cup artichoke hearts
  • ½ cup crumbled feta
  • Optional: grilled ciabatta crostini
  1. Preheat broiler and place top rack near the heat source. You want the rack close, but not placed on the closest notch to the heat - one or two down from there.
  2. In a large oven safe skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add in onions and sauté for 3-5 mins or until beginning to turn translucent. Add garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes and continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add wine tot he pan to deglaze, scraping up any browned bits. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes until the wine slightly reduces. Add in the canned tomatoes, stir and turn to high heat.
  4. Bring tomato mixture to a boi. Cook for about 5 minutes and then turn off.
  5. Add in olives, artichoke hearts and shrimp. Make sure the shrimp are evenly mixed thorough and are mostly covered with the sauce (this will help prevent them from burning or drying out).
  6. Sprinkle on the feta and place on the top rack of your oven. Cook for about 5-7 mins or until feta is lightly browned and shrimp are pink and starting to curl.
  7. Serve shrimp hot right out of the serving pan with grilled ciabatta crostini or lightly toasted bread.
