Greek Shrimp With Feta and Mint


This recipe quickly won over the family. I used two fresh from the garden Romas as well as home canned tomatoes. The onions/shallots, garlic, okra and mint were also grown on the homestead. Even if you can’t get these all from your back yard I still think this recipe is a winner.

I sprinkled a little fresh grated Parmesan on it as well as 4 ounces of Feta. I would have used 6 ounces of Feta, but I only had 4. I backed off on the cumin because it has such a strong and distinct flavor. I also backed off on the oregano because I find it bitter. The Italian seasoning is light on oregano and I felt it worked well. We ate it served over Jasmine rice.

Give it a try. Tell us if you tried it as written, modified or did your own thing. Recipes are “suggestions” anyway, aren’t they?

Cindy A. Rose began writing for the Tentacle in 2011 trying to raise awareness over things happening within Frederick County Public Schools. She began keeping a close watch on FCPS when she learned there were not enough air conditioned buses for special needs children during the hot Maryland summers. The Tentacle offered her a place to share her concerns with her community when local newspapers didn’t always. Cindy had the opportunity to buy the Tentacle from creator/owner John W. Ashbury in 2019, so she did. She believed then, as she believes now, our communities, friends and neighbors have important things to say that needs to be shared with those living around them. Large corporate news companies don’t always share in those passions and concerns. The Tentacle is a local news, commentary and community website run by citizens, for citizens. Its success depends on your participation.
