A sunny day on the beach with white sand, blue sky, and a frying pan full of Mediterranean shrimp covered with feta cheese. Give me a moment to wear my sunglasses and floppy hat with a broad brim, and I'll be there!
This one-pan Mediterranean shrimp dish features succulent shrimp baked in a garlicky tomato sauce and traditional Mediterranean ingredients such as artichokes and olives, all simmering away under a shower of creamy feta cheese. This dish will transport you to a sunny and relaxing place, regardless of the actual state of your home, kitchen, or general mental well-being.
The tastes, fresh and complex, will positively deceive you. This dish tastes like a dinner you would order while on the five-star oceanside vacation that we all very much need at this very time, even though it is created nearly exclusively from items found in the pantry and freezer.
This healthy Mediterranean garlic shrimp dish is your ticket to a distant, dreamlike meal you can create without leaving the comfort of your home. It has shrimp, garlic, and olive oil.
You can serve it over rice and accompany it with a piece of crusty bread, but you can also simply lay the skillet in the middle of the table, pass around the forks, and dig in right then and there (you can do the same thing with this Sheet Pan Mediterranean Shrimp). After all, this is your time off. Enjoy it.
What is the marvelous key to creating simple shrimp meals like this one? To prepare them, you don't even need to use fresh shrimp!
For my healthy shrimp recipes, I choose frozen shrimp because it requires less preparation (especially if you buy it already peeled) and is more cost-effective (in many cases, the "fresh" shrimp sold in the seafood case has been frozen before! ), and can be prepared quickly and easily.
Another advantage of creating meals using traditional Mediterranean foods is that many of these products, such as artichokes and olives, have a long shelf life, making it simple to stock up on them whenever necessary (this classic Mediterranean Pasta is an excellent example of a recipe that makes the most of them).
However, if you would want to add more to your supper, the following are some options for sides that go well with shrimp:
Shrimp are roasted in a tomato-garlic sauce with artichokes and feta cheese in this simple and nutritious one-pan dish, Mediterranean Shrimp. You may serve it over rice or pasta, or you can eat it on its own!
