Shrimp With Roasted Red Peppers and Feta

15 years ago I probably would have turned my nose up at the site of this recipe. Nothing in it, with exception of maybe the shrimp, and in most cases, not even that, would have seemed appetizing to me. Now... well, I've grown. A little. A smidgen. Don't get me wrong there are still things I can't even fathom eating, but this, this beautiful combination of gorgeous colors and flavors...made my tastebuds do a little jig.

This is a very simple. Very elegant recipe. Takes little to no time. I served it with asparagus and bread.

Shrimp With Roasted Red Peppers and Feta
(It's all in the title, only a couple extra ingredients!)

1 12 ounce jar of roasted red peppers
1 bunch of scallions
1 head of garlic (I used three)
1 1/2 pounds of shrimp (I actually used pre-cooked frozen shrimp and it turned out perfectly.
6 ounces of feta (I used the basil, tomato it a little more zaa zaa zoom)
kosher salt and pepper to taste

Drain the red peppers and cut into smaller 1 inch chunks or slices. Chop scallions and garlic. Add red peppers, scallions, garlic, shrimp and all of feta cheese to casserole dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Feta will probably not melt but will brown instead. See, seriouly easy. Seriously wonderful!!
