Greek Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta
Greek Shrimp

If you close your eyes while eating this dish I swear you will hear the waves of the Mediterranean Ocean lapping on the shore. It is that good. Not only is it delicious, but it is really pretty. We obviously had it as our main course, but it could easily be served as a first course for a dinner party or even as an appetizer, tapas-style.

I went ahead and skinned the tomatoes, but if you are pressed for time you could probably skip this step.

Garlic Bread

Maybe not the healthiest, but you have to indulge once in awhile…

1 baguette, halved lengthwise
1 TB. butter
¼ cup of olive oil
6 cloves of garlic, minced
handful of parsley, minced (optional)
¼ ts. garlic powder
salt and pepper

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a small saucepan, heat butter, olive oil and garlic until the garlic releases its aroma and gets a little bit golden.

Garlic Cooking

Remove from heat and stir in the parsley (if using), garlic powder, salt and pepper. Brush mixture all over the inside of the baguette. Wrap the baguette in foil and place in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, then open up the foil so that the top of the baguette is exposed and bake for another 2-3 minutes, or until the bread is hard to the touch and a bit crispy.
