Roasted Shrimp with Feta

This is another recipe from Annie's Eats. When she posted it a few weeks ago, I knew that now that I had an oven I had to try it!

I think this is a crowd-pleasing great weeknight meal. For one, it's all done in a single skillet (one dish recipes get bonus points from me!). Plus, it's pretty quick and it's low maintenance. But more than that, it's SO tasty. I wanted to just take a spoon to the skillet when it was finished. The tomato sauce has a rich depth to it that works so well with the tangy feta and crunchy bread topping.

You could serve any veggie/starch alongside it; I made browned butter orzo and zucchini/squash (which blew my one dish night but was worth it!). Even just a salad and some bread would be delicious with it!

Roasted Shrimp with Feta
3 tbsp. olive oil, divided
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced (just grate them over the skillet - must faster!)
1/3 cup dry white wine
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes, with liquid
2 tsp. tomato paste
1½ tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. kosher salt
½ tsp. black pepper
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
3 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 tsp. lemon zest
1 lb. large shrimp (16-20 per lb.), peeled with tail segments left intact, deveined
5 oz. crumbled feta cheese
Juice of 1 lemon
Fresh lemon wedges, for serving

Preheat the oven to 400˚ F. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet (I used my cast iron skillet) over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until slightly tender, 5-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Continue to cook 2-3 minutes, until the liquid has reduced by half.

Add the tomatoes with the liquid, tomato paste, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir to combine, reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10-15 minutes.

Combine the bread crumbs, parsley, lemon zest and the remaining tablespoon olive oil in a bowl. Toss well with a fork to blend.

Remove the pan from the heat. Lay the shrimp in a single layer, tails up, on top of the the tomato mixture. Scatter the feta over the top of the shrimp, followed by the bread crumb mixture.

Bake for 15 minutes, until the shrimp are cooked through and the breadcrumbs are browned. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the shrimp. Serve with additional lemon wedges.
