Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta

The first dish from Cedric’s Four Course Dinner Party is Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta (GARIDES SAGANAKI). We think it is the best way to entice your guests for a delicious meal. The term saganaki refers to the skillet in which Greeks cook ingredients with cheese. In this appetizer, shrimp is topped with crumbled feta and broiled.
