Feta and fennel enrich shrimp impossible to overcook

Shrimp with Feta Cheese (Garides Saganaki)

30 minutes

This classic Greek dish pairs plump, sweet shrimp with briny feta cheese. We added chopped Kalamata olives for added savoriness, as well as ground fennel seed for hint of anise flavor. Our preferred tomato for this recipe is Campari (or cocktail) tomatoes, as they tend to be sweet and flavorful year-round; they're larger than cherry tomatoes but smaller than standard round tomatoes and usually sold on the vine in plastic containers. We tried cherry and grape tomatoes but found their skins to be tough and unpleasant in the finished sauce. Chopped Peppadew peppers are an unconventional ingredient, but their mild, sweet heat makes them a welcome addition. Serve with crusty bread to sop up the sauce.
