Shrimp Saganaki

250

(for one appetizer portion)

6 large whole shrimp 
1/4 cup olive oil
 
1/2 small red onion, sliced
 
1/4 green bell pepper, sliced
 
1/4 yellow bell pepper, sliced

some diced hot banana pepper 
(depending how spicy you like your dish)
 
1 medium ripe tomato, diced
 
1/2 cup button mushrooms, sliced
 
half cup Greek feta, coarsely crumbled
 
1 tsp. dried Greek oregano

splash of Ouzo
Grated Kasseri (or other white cheese)
salt to taste

  1. In a saucepan, add your olive oil over medium-high heat and add your mushrooms and saute for 2-3 minutes or until they have browned. Now add your onions, peppers and tomatoes and simmer for another 5-7 minutes or until you end up with a nice thick sauce.
  2. Take off the heat and add your crumbled feta, oregano and Ouzo and stir in. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt (if any required) and additional heat (if desired).
  3. Pour the mixture into an oven-safe baking vessel (like the saganaki) and arrange the shrimp on top. Grate some Kasseri on top and place under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until the shrimp have turned pink and the cheese becomes a golden brown.
  4. Serve with crusty bread, Greek ouzo and with good company.
