The fetta was the perfect topping. Excellent dinner.
Absolutely divine, and so easy! I used white wine instead of ouzo, but otherwise made it just as suggested, and...WOW! Crusty bread...a must with this, as the juices are sooooo...juicy!
With last reviewer ABSOLUTELY agree! This is TRULY an OUTSTANDING recipe! Made in casserole pan as well, When will I make this again? Time WILL tell! Used half feta, half grated parmesan cheese! 3 teaspoons HEAPS as chili does please! The Ouzo is a MUST as the taste is there, This is one of those recipes that shows you care! Thanks!
One of the best recipes I've tried in a long time...I rarely follow recipes so closely! I did the entire recipe in an 8x8 casserole pan and cut the shrimp down to 1 lb. I increased the garlic to 4 and probably doubles the basil. VERY FLAVORFUL!!! I didn't have the ouzo but didn't miss it. I am assuming it could only add to the flavors. The cheese under the broiler was the perfect finishing touch. Thank you SO very much!!
Two thumbs up for this dish! It's excellent. The seasonings are perfectly balanced so that nothing overpowers. Although the Ouzo is optional I think it has an impact on the flavour of the dish. You can't identify it amongst the other seasonings and there's definitely no hint of "licorice". I followed the recipe as written with a few minor changes - used a 28 oz. can of whole tomatoes (drained) coarsely chopped, as well as 4 fresh plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped (didn't bother peeling them). Added 4 chopped green onions (white and light green parts only), and increased the fresh oregano to a heaping tablespoon. Layered the shrimp and sauce in one large casserole. This can be assembled ahead and heated at 400F for a few minutes till bubbly before browning the cheese under the broiler.
Wonderful, I cooked half the amount in a single dish and then ate the whole lot myself, sometimes it's good not to have to share!
This is really good! I made 1/2 of the recipe and put it in one shallow casserole dish. It was wonderful. I think the ouzo adds a great flavor. Served it with some crusty bread, as suggested. We will definitely make this again!
This dish contains many of my favorite things so how could I not love it? I followed the directions exactly with the exception of the Ouzo- I don't like licorice at all. Thanks momi- I really loved this delicious shrimp dish.
