Shrimp in Tomato Sauce with Feta Cheese

This recipe is easy to prepare – and the sauce is great, especially with warmed bread.


1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup onions, minced
1/2 cup dry white wine
5 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon fresh oregano, minced
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1 pound raw large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped


Saute the onion in butter and oil in a large, heavy pan. When the onion is soft, add wine, garlic, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and oregano. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until the sauce thickens. Stir in feta cheese and simmer for 10 minutes. Adjust seasonings. Add shrimp and cook for 5 minutes or just until shrimp are pink. Don’t overcook or the shrimp will be chewy. Sprinkle with parsely. Serve with warmed sourdough bread on the side.
