How to make it
- PREHEAT THE OVEN to 450. Place the shrimp in a large bowl and pour the lemon juice over them. Toss and set aside.
- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat, then cook the onion or shallots and scallions until translucent, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes, wine, garlic, parsley and season with salt and pepper. Stir well, reduce the heat to low and simmer until dense, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the fresh oregano.
- Spoon some sauce into a large baking dish. Spread the shrimp around the dish and cover with the remaining sauce. Spread the feta cheese around, pushing the chunks of cheese down into the sauce. Place in the oven and bake until the shrimp are cooked and the cheese melted, about 15-20 minutes.
- *I broil for about 3 minutes to give the shrimp and cheese a slight 'browning'. It makes for a prettier presentation. Just don't OVERCOOK the shrimps!
- Remove from the oven and serve garnished with parsley leaves
