Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and red onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes, or until the onion softens and starts to turn golden brown.

Step 2

Add white wine to deglaze the bottom of the skillet, scraping up any brown bits with a spatula.

Step 3

Reduce heat to medium and add crushed tomatoes, olives, dill, oregano, and red chili flakes. Season with Calizo Italian Seasoning. 

Season with additional salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.

Step 4

Simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add shrimp and 2 tablespoons of the parsley. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until shrimp just turns pink. Do not overcook the shrimp.

Step 5

Remove from heat and adjust seasonings, to taste. To serve, transfer to a serving dish and top with remaining fresh parsley and crumbled Feta cheese.
