Sizzling shrimp with feta
Grilled shrimp are one of life’s simple pleasures. In this recipe, succulent shrimp are topped with crumbled feta cheese, and then flashed under the broiler until sizzling and golden. The shrimp and feta are infused with the flavors of olive oil, garlic and parsley, which are classic ingredients in Greek cuisine.
This easy, delicious recipe makes a fantastic appetizer, either eaten by itself or with some crusty bread to mop up the garlicky oil. It would also make a lovely meal tossed with pasta and served with a salad on the side.
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic — finely chopped
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
¼ teaspoon salt
2½ oz (70g) feta cheese
Freshly ground black pepper to season
Tip: To turn this appetizer into a complete meal simply add a side salad and some crusty bread.
