This is a recipe from Gourmet magazine that I really enjoy. It is great served with crusty bread to sop up the sauce, or serve it over rice. Have a yummy green salad on the side!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees with rack in the middle.
  2. Cook onion and garlic in oil with 1/4 tsp salt in a 4-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in spices and cook, stirring 30 seconds. Add chopped tomatoes with juice and sugar and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Season shrimp with 1/8 tsp salt, then stir into tomato sauce. Transfer to a 2-quart shallow baking dish and top with feta. Bake until just cooked through, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve sprinkled with dill.

I made 2 servings that I served over a brown and wild rice mix. The flavors are lovely, I upped the cinnamon just a bit and skipped the cheese and dill for personal preference. It came out a real treat that I much enjoyed.

We enjoyed the different flavors in this dish. The sweetness of the spices were something new for us. I did cut the recipe in half and served it over some linguine. Just a salad and the crusty bread as suggested for a wonderful meal. Thanks for posting. :)

Very good! And the aroma is divine but we love cinnamon! (And cinnamon is so good for you, read You On A Diet.) I split the recipe in half, omitted the dill due to personal preferences but otherwise made as posted. Next time I would reduce the crushed red pepper. Served ours over rice with some quick crescent rolls and a salad. Congrats for winning TOPS prize in Top Favorites of 2008 game. Thank you breezermom for sharing.
