Ouzo Shrimp

Seasoned with a spicy tomato sauce, feta cheese, and ouzo, this shrimp dish can serve as a first course or an entrée. I have made this several times as a first course for a Greek-themed dinner and everyone loves it! Originally from a magazine back in the 80's that featured a gourmet Greek dinner menu and recipes.
