Roasted Tomatoes With Shrimp and Feta

You know those days when you’re looking for something healthy to whip up but you don’t have the time or the energy to put in the effort? That’s when I turn to Real Simple for an easy peasy recipe that still lets you pass as totally domesticated.  This  recipe is something you can throw together post-work and still impress that 6:00 pm company as if you cooked all afternoon.

Roasted Tomatoes With Shrimp and Feta


  • 5 large tomatoes, cut into eights
  • 3  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 2  tablespoons  minced garlic
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1 1/2  pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2  cup  chopped fresh parsley
  • 2  tablespoons  lemon juice
  • 1  cup  Feta, crumbled
  • crusty bread, for serving


  1. Heat oven to 450° and place the tomatoes in a large baking dish. Then spoon the olive oil and garlic over them.
  2. Sprinkle with ¾ teaspoon each salt and pepper and toss. Roast on top rack of oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove baking dish from oven and stir in the shrimp, parsley, and lemon juice. Sprinkle with the Feta.
  4. Return the dish to oven until the shrimp are cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm with the bread.

This is something that doesn’t require a lot of attention so you’ll have plenty of time to powder your nose and throw on something pretty while it’s baking!
