Roasted Tomatoes & Shrimp
4 large tomatoes, cut in large chunks
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
2 lbs shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 lemons, juiced
S&P to taste
1/4 cup feta crumbles
Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the tomatoes and garlic in a baking dish with a little stock and roast for about 20 minutes. Take the dish out and place the shrimp on there with the juice of the 2 lemons, the parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle the top with feta and place in oven for another 6 minutes or so.
Oh, I am so excited for you to try this dish. It really takes minutes to make and it is simply divine. Put it over some brown rice and you can even throw some asparagus in the oven while the shrimp is baking (I did) and you can have this with roasted asparagus (I sprinkled some pine nuts on top). It was a great healthy dinner and super quick to make and easy clean up. Gotta love it!
