I adpoted this recipe from the infamous Mean Chef, it had no intro as it really does not need one. An elegant and deep flavored dish sure to please.

This was a good, easy recipe to follow, we did cut back on the oil a little but I don't think it affected it hugely. We made the sauce with herbs fresh from our garden, and I suggest you'll want crusty bread to mop those gorgeous juices up!
Easy but very flavorful dish. I had med. shrimp so cooked at 400 for 8 min. Turned out perfectly. Served with a Cranberry, Feta and Walnut Salad. So good.
I used this recipe to use up some feta cheese! We found this recipe "pleasant". I only used 3 T oil, as I thought 1/2 cup was excessive and used 3 garlic, minced. I had some roasted tomatoes in my freezer, so I used 2 cups of that. I followed the recipe to a T.... except, I finished cooking the prawns and feta on the stove. To me, it was just that extra step that wasn't needed and less to clean up! I used one bag of large prawns (16-18 count) and I found that there was an excessive amount of sauce leftover that wasn't used...and to me, a waste that went down the sink! The sauce needed a bit of a zip, so next time I have feta, I probably would add some chili paste and cut the tomatoes down to 1-1/4 cup. Nice recipe, good to use up feta cheese....but nothing special!
