Greek Style Scampi

Well here is another recipe that met my requirements!

1 tsp olive oil
5 garlic cloves, minced
2 (28oz) cans diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley, divided
1 1/2 lbs large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup (4oz) crumbled feta cheese
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; saute 30 sec. Add tomatoes and 1/4 c parsley. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes. Add shrimp; cook 5 minutes.
3. Pour shrimp mixture into a 9x13 in baking dish; sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/4 c. parsley, lemon juice, and pepper. Yield 6 servings.

Serve scampi over rice or pasta.

I always add more lemon juice, and I also use a lemon-garlic-oregano flavored feta cheese from Athenos. YUM!
