Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta

I have a thing for feta these days.  I started buying a bunch of feta to make my Mediterranean filling but then found myself looking for other dishes to add the salty, crumbly goodness to.    Of course, I love to toss it into a salad and will even make a Greek style "wrap" full of veggies and a little feta.

So when I saw this recipe from Saveur that uses feta I was intrigued.  After reading how simple the recipe is, both in process and ingredients, I'm quite certain I'm going to give it a try.  If you read the ingredients list, you will see that they call for 4 fresh tomatoes grated.   I don't remember the first time I saw that technique but it really come in handy, especially now when there is an abundance of sun ripened heirloom tomatoes.  It makes a light but flavorful tomato sauce.

I can just imagine using a hunk of crusty bread to mop up that spicy, garlicky sauce!  I might try one tiny adjustment if I were to make this in the winter when the fresh tomatoes are not of the best quality: using canned fire roasted tomatoes. The extra hit of smokiness would be divine me thinks.

Shrimp with Tomatoes & Feta, rustic bread, a glass of lightly chilled wine (or Pellegrino if you are so inclined)... that sounds like a perfect summer meal to me!

Happy weekending everyone!
