Shrimps Tourkolimano


When I saw the recipe of this dish in Closet Cooking ( originally found on Kalofagos.ca), I knew I have to try it. Unfortunately, my dish wasn't as beautiful as they turned out for Closet Cooking and Kalofagos, but it tasted really great!!! Well, my shrimps were really mini mini... still... What's not to like?! Shrimps, lots of fresh herbs, and wine... With a slice of crusty bread... Super-licious!!!

What do we need:

400 gr of shrimps

salt and pepper to taste

3 spring onions

1 onion

3 cloves of garlic

100 ml of olive oil

1 large tomato

150 ml  dry white wine

1 tbsp. dry oregano

some chopped fresh mint

some chopped fresh basil

1 slab of Greek feta, coarsely crumbled

chopped fresh parsley and chives for garnish

What we have to do:

1.Season your shrimps ( or prawns, they are bigger) with a little salt and pepper. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add your oil. Add your shrimps and saute for 2 min. Remove your shrimps.

2.In the skillet, add diced tomatoes, onion, and garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes. Now add your wine and herbs and shrimp and simmer for another 2 minutes while stirring. Turn off the heat and gently fold in the crumbled feta.

3. Cover and allow to rest for 2-3 minutes more. Garnish with parsley and chives and serve immediately with crusty bread.
