Shrimp Saganaki (Greek Shrimp)

Marsha Gardner


This spicy tomato sauce, salty feta cheese and succulent shrimp combo is so good! The recipe calls for Ouzo, which is a Greek anise flavored liqueur. Although you do not taste the ouzo in the final product, unless you use a lot of it, it adds that something to the dish that just makes it better.
