Week 5: Greek Shrimp Pasta

The Recipe
20gr shrimp, thawed
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 tbsp butter
½ tbsp olive oil
90gr crumbled feta cheese
3 green onions, finely chopped
2 tsp oregano
2 fresh tomatoes cored, seeded and coarsely chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Cooked pasta

In a large mixing bowl, combine feta, green onions, oregano, tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste. Let mixture stand at room temperature for at least one hour.

In a pan, add the butter and olive oil and heat. Add the garlic and stir till starting to brown, then add the shrimp, toss together and cook for 5 minutes or until the shrimps are done. Remove from heat.

To the shrimp mixture, add the pasta, toss together, then top with the feta cheese mixture.

The Verdict
I think I would have enjoyed it more if the tomatoes and green onions had been cooked and the shrimps left cold ;-) I'm not usually one for warm shrimps (with a few notable exceptions found on this blog) and the raw green onions were too overpowering. A quick and easy meal though, so if neither of those things bother you, I'd recommend it.
