Shrimp Saganaki (Recipe)


✅ 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 1 pound medium size shrimp peeled

✅ 4 cloves garlic minced

✅ 1/4 cup orzo

✅ 1 large onion chopped

✅ 1 small hot pepper sliced
✅ 2 teaspoons pepper flakes

✅ 3 medium tomatoes pureed in a food processor or 1 pound canned crushed tomatoes

✅ 3-4 ounces crumbled feta

✅ chopped basil

✅ salt/pepper for taste


1️⃣ Preheat oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 C)

2️⃣ Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and sauté for about 4 minutes, add the garlic and sauté for one more minute. Add the ouzo and sauté for 2-3 minutes, until alcohol has evaporated. Set aside.

3️⃣ In another pot add the rest of the olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) and sauté the onion until translucent. Add the pepper flakes and hot pepper and sauté 2-3 more minutes. Add the tomatoes and simmer until sauce thickens.

4️⃣ Empty the tomato sauce in the pan with the shrimp and mix gently. Empty the whole mixture in a oven proof casserole or a “saganaki” if you have one.

5️⃣ Sprinkle with the feta and bake for 15 minutes.

6️⃣ Serve with chopped basil.
