Watch Us Make: Feta Shrimp Skillet

Busy nights were made for this speedy, Greek-inspired feta shrimp skillet.

When thinking of the perfect weeknight meal, a few things come to mind: It’s gotta be fast, it’s gotta have easy cleanup, and-more than anything-it’s gotta be delicious. Lucky for you, this Feta Shrimp Skillet hits all three, though it tastes way more exotic than your typical Wednesday night dinner. Home cook Sonali Ruder of New York, New York, came up with the recipe after being inspired on a special getaway, “On our honeymoon in Greece, my husband and I had a dish like this one,” she says. “I tried to re-create the flavors in this recipe when we got home. When I make it now, it brings back such wonderful memories.”

It’s easy to see why Sonali wanted to recreate the recipe in her own kitchen. The dish has a light tomato sauce with garlic and oregano and is loaded with shrimp and feta cheese that melts to the perfect level of creaminess. But best of all, it all comes together in one skillet and in just 30 minutes. That means dinner’s on the table fast and the cleanup is even faster. Make this super fresh skillet just once, and it’ll make its way into your weeknight dinner routine in no time. Check out the rest in our roundup of easy, delicious recipes for one-pot meals.
