By Andrew Zimmern


Peel and devein the shrimp, reserve.

Place the oil in a large oven proof saute pan over high heat. A 14” sauteuse works best.

When hot, add the onion, garlic, fennel seed, oregano, parsley and chile flake.

Sauté until glassy.

Add the wine and the tomatoes, cook until most of the liquid has evaporated .

Add the shrimp and toss quickly for 60 seconds.

Place under a hot broiler to cook through, this will only take a few minutes.

Add the feta, sprinkled over the top and the lemon juice.

Place under the broiler again and color up the cheese.

Serve immediately.
