NOTES: I love feta, shrimp and Greek food so as I was pulling this together, I just used my favorite ingredients. A couple of tips for you:
. Take the tale off the shrimp so you can easily swoop up the sauce and shrimp, top a bread slice and enjoy.
. If your feta sauce is thick, add more lemon juice or a splash of heavy cream, half and half or milk. I like mine a little thicker so just make it your own. FYI: this makes a great dip for veggies too!
. This also makes a great platted appetizer. Just spread a slice of the baguette with the feta sauce, top with a shrimp and sprinkle with chives and maybe a little lemon zest. Perfecto!
. This can be the easiest dish to pull together if you premake the seasoning mix and the sauce. You can easily do that a day or two before serving. Buy your shrimp all ready cleaned, deveined and tail removed for the fastest dish ever.
I’ve served this same dish with a side of sauteed, sliced zuccini seasoned with the same seasoning. A complete meal in minutes.
