Shrimp & Feta
Kalamata Olives, Lemon Wheels
Oregano, Red Chile Flakes, Olive Oil, Lemon Juice
The following note was in my mailbox at work:
Lori Lynn – Please bring an APPETIZER for the party on Tuesday.
Once a month we have a festive luncheon for the faculty and staff who are celebrating birthdays. This month I brought spicy Shrimp & Feta which is definitely a crowd-pleaser. And it couldn’t be much easier or quicker to prepare.
Place cooked shrimp in a large ziplock bag with hunks of good feta and lemon wheels. Add dried oregano and red chile flakes to taste. Pour in plenty of fruity olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice to well-coat the mixture. Place drained pitted kalamata olives in a separate baggie to keep them from discoloring the feta. Travel time to work or to a party gives the mixture time to marinate. To serve, gently toss the bag to mix all the ingredients then pour into a pretty serving bowl. Top with the olives. That’s it.
Wow, might be my shortest post since 2007.

I feel I should leave the shortest comment I’ve left since 2007! Quick but delicious ~ I love it. Thanks, LL.
Short. Sweet, delish!
Well Peter, it does have “your” ingredients after all 🙂
To me, you are both the quintessential party hostess, who prepares gorgeous tables on which she serves elegant dishes, and also the expert organizer, who knows what to bring to any occasion. I truly admire you.
Aww, Simona, you are so sweet, too kind, really. Grazie my friend!

The most practical and easy solution which I have seen in many a day! True multitasking even if you are supposedly not!! Nice dish also 🙂 !
Hey Peter took my comment. Short and sweet!
There is no reason not to prepare an appetizer when it is as simple as this one is. I make marinated feta and olives but never thought of adding shrimp….great idea.
Right up your alley, FA!
Well this may become my go-to dish to take to parties. What a great idea – great flavors and east and fast to make.
Can’t get much easier and tastier than this! What a great appetizer to throw together and I know if was a real crowd pleaser! Thanks for sharing this great idea!
