Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 C)
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and sauté for about 4 minutes, add the garlic and sauté for one more minute. Add the ouzo and sauté for 2-3 minutes, until alcohol has evaporated. Set aside.
  • In another pot add the rest of the olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) and sauté the onion until translucent. Add the pepper flakes and hot pepper and sauté 2-3 more minutes. Add the tomatoes and simmer until sauce thickens.
  • Empty the tomato sauce in the pan with the shrimp and mix gently. Empty the whole mixture in a oven proof casserole or a "saganaki" if you have one.
  • Sprinkle with the feta and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Serve with chopped basil.
