Baked Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta

I haven't cooked any shrimp dishes in a while, and I'd been craving feta for ages. I'm trying my hardest to cook a bit healther, but you'd never know it by my recent posts! So, I found this recipe made by Elie Krieger in her cookbook The Food Your Crave, tweaked it up a bit with some of the herbs I had on hand, and we absolutely devoured this dish.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can of diced tomatoes, with their juices
  • 2 small fresh tomatoes, on the vine
  • 1 cup chicken stock.
  • 1/4 cup finely minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • A good handful of fresh chopped cilantro
  • A tbsp of fresh finely chopped thyme
  • 1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2/3 - 1 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 4 ounces)


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Heat the oil in an oven proof skillet over a medium-high heat.

Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes, then add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Add the tomatoes and stock bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer for about 5 minutes, until the tomato juices thicken.

Remove from the heat. Stir in the parsley, thyme, cilantro, and shrimp and season with salt and pepper.

Sprinkle the feta over the top. Bake until the shrimp are cooked through and cheese melts, about 12 minutes.

Serve over orzo or rice.
