  • 5 large whole shrimps (No1) fresh or frozen
  • ¼ green bell pepper minced
  • 80 grams/ 2.8 oz feta cheese coarsely crumbled
  • ½ tablespoon parsley chopped
  • a splash of white wine (can use brandy or ouzo instead)
  • a splash of olive oil
  • ½ batch of this 3-ingredient fresh tomato sauce


  • Clean and prepare the shrimps. Removing their mustaches, legs, and shells except the top and bottom shell. See text above for thorough instructions.
  • Heat a splash of olive oil in a non-stick pan over high heat. Add the shrimps and cook for about a minute on each side.
  • Stir in the bell pepper and add the splash of wine. Cook for a minute or so for the wine to evaporate.
  • Add in the fresh tomato sauce and a splash of water if the sauce is too thickened. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer covered, for about 12 minutes. Flip the shrimps at least once.
  • Add the chopped parsley and coarsely crumbled feta cheese. Turn heat to high and cook for 2-3 minutes for the cheese to melt (make sure there are a few chunky pieces left here and there). Serve right away with freshly ground pepper on top.
