ingredients

1 Lbs. Large Shrimp, peeled, deveined and tail removed

1 Tbsp. plus 1 Tsp. Olive oil

1 Tbsp. butter

1/2 Tsp. Dried oregano

1/8 Tsp. Dried dill

1/2 Tsp. Granulated garlic

1/8 Tsp. Onion powder

1/8 Tsp. Kosher Salt

1/4 Tsp. Freshly grated black pepper

1/4 Tsp. Calabrian chili flakes (optional)

1 Tbsp. Fresh chives, chopped (optional garnish)

Lemon wedges, for serving (optional)

Baguette slices to serve (optional)

FETA SAUCE

1/2 Cup crumbled feta cheese

3 Heaping Tbsp. Fat free Greek yogurt

2 Tbsp. + Fresh lemon juice tablespoons

1/4 Tsp. Smoked paprika

DIRECTIONS

1. Make the feta sauce by adding all the ingredients to a blender and process until smooth. Taste. If needed, add a little salt and pepper (be careful sense feta cheese can be salty). Add more lemon juice if needed to make the sauce thinner. Put to the side until ready to serve. (You can chill the sauce covered until serving if you are making in advance.)

2. Mix the oregano, dill, garlic, onion, salt and pepper in a small dish. Put the  shrimp in a bowl and add a teaspoon of olive oil. Toss the shrimp to coat. Then sprinkle the shrimp with the mixed seasoning. Toss to coat the shrimp.

3. Heat a large skillet over a medium high heat and add the tablespoon of olive oil and the butter and let melt and get hot.  Add the shrimp and cook for about 2 minutes and then flip the shrimp and cook another 2 minutes until the shrimp turn pink, and are cooked through.  Sprinkle with the chili flakes.

4.  Spread the feta sauce onto a large serving plate or onto individual plates, and arrange the shrimp over the feta sauce.  Sprinkle with the chopped chives.  Serve with lemon wedges and baguette slices and enjoy.

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.
