Baked Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta

Last night I made one of me and my husbands favourite recipes, baked shrimp with tomatoes and feta. I have tweaked the recipe from Martha Stewart slightly and I like my version better ;) . I will leave her original recipe for you and let you know the changes I made to mine. Trust me this is a great crowd pleas-er and its pretty easy too! I don’t use the peas in the orzo I use pesto and Parmesan cheese instead! ;) I also omit the mint. Other than that I pretty much follow the recipe. Enjoy.

One thought on “Baked Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta

  1. Why do so may people dsilike cilantro? Not only is it crazy, it tastes kind of like so many other greens that I don’t understand the specific aversion to cilantro. It takes all kinds, I suppose.I like the recipe because it looks like something I could make (even without a garden!) Where do you get your lemon olive oil? Do you make it? (Please say you buy it.)
