    was ok, nothing special. I had to add some things to jazz it up a bit.

    Very, very easy and very good! I omitted the wine b/c we didn't have any on hand and used fresh Roma tomatoes instead of canned and they were to die for. I let them sit in some olive oil for bit while I chopped up the onion (I used red b/c we had it-very good addition) and the whole thing smelled and tasted delish. Will def. make again! We had couscous with pine nuts and herbs alongside and it was a fab meal.

    Used fresh oregano rather than dry, petite diced tomato & jumbo shrimp. Served with the recommended orzo. Nice color & flavors. "Two stars" because 12 minutes at 450° would have been tooo long in our oven for jumbo and feta cheese doesn't melt.

    So easy and delicious! Had friends over and they loved it. New quick shrimp dish-great for entertaining. Thought orzo needed something as well, but was still good.

    Wow! Very yummy! Hubby had seconds! Easy to prepare and sooooooooo good!

    Very easy and I served it with the orzo with about 1 tsp of parm cheese. I also used reduced fat feta cheese but it didn't really melt. I don't think it mattered. The bf said it was the best thing I made in a long time. If the shrimp are cleaned and the rest of the ingredients prechopped it is a super short meal to make.

    I've made this twice now and we've been very, very happy both times w/the results. The clam juice I had in the fridge was not usable so I just added a some chicken broth and all the liquid left in the shrimp/lemon bowl. Next time I will add some fresh basil (the recipe doesn't *need* basil but, honestly, is basil ever a bad idea?) and will likely saute in a dutch oven or something that can go stovetop to oven to avoid another dish for clean up. Also, though I am a fan of orzo, I think this would lend itself well to penne or something that can hold a bit more of the sauce. Will absolutely make this again.

    That was wonderful. I served the shrimp over the herbed pasta and it was yummy!!!

    We thought this dish was wonderful! Made exactly like recipe using reduced fat feta. Served with CL Lemony Orzo Salad. Perfect combination. Great spring/summer meal. Light but delicious!! Also used fresh herbs. DEFINITELY make again!

    Good and tasty dinner, but didn't wow enough to repeat.

    I prefer shrimp sauteed or broiled, but my spouse and his friend thought it was fabulous. I followed the recipe exactly except for adding another garlic clove and some crushed red pepper. If I'd had fresh oregano, that would have been preferable. Served with lemony orzo and green salad. The serving were very ample, as the dish served me and two large men! I used leftover clam broth to make a simple clam and potato chowder for lunch.

  • nottenrose Posted: 05/06/09

    This really was quite excellent, and well worth the rather limited effort. We generally like very spicy foods; this was not, but we loved it anyway. To serve two, we simply adjusted the quantity of shrimp and left everything else as is. The orzo was a nice complement, and we'll certainly make this meal again.

  • katnunchuck Posted: 05/11/09

    I liked this, but honestly I thought it was just okay. I cooked it exactly as instructed but the shrimp came out a bit tough. Either my oven is too hot, or the cooking time should be reduced. The sauce was pretty thin and there was a lot of liquid in the pan. It was a cinch to prepare, but I was a little irked at the small amount of clam juice. Since I don't use clam juice often, it's kind of a hassle to have had to buy it and now find space in my small crowded fridge to store it. Solve both the liquid and the storage issue by omitting it? I haven't done it so I can't say for sure. I served this with the suggested orzo-herb salad and some steamed broccoli. I probably won't make it again.

  • DeniseAnne Posted: 04/26/09

    It was fantastic!!! It was quick, and easy to make. I added extra garlic, wine, and feta and used dried spices in the orzo which was fine for a last minute dinner. I will experiment with other ways with the orzo and maybe try chicken instead of shrimp!

  • forsberg Posted: 04/02/09

    This was VERY easy to make. I used thawed frozen shrimp (basically, because I had it in the freezer). The flavors were fantastic and the orzo was a GREAT pairing! Would add some diced veggies to the orzo. Husband LOVED it, will definitely make it again soon!

  • Schmatterson Posted: 05/03/09

    This dish is amazing! The orzo was so easy but so tasty, and the shrimp dish was the perfect combination of flavors. A new regular in our rotation!

    OMG. This is the best shrimp dish I have ever made. Can't wait to make it again. I didn't change a thing and my husband raved about it.

  • Daniellelee Posted: 05/19/10

    This was very good! Like another I used chicken broth instead of clam juice. Other than that followed exactly. Served with green beans and brown rice.

    I added spinach to the dish and it was delicious.

  • ctodd1 Posted: 05/11/09

    This was an excellent dish. My boyfriend loved it. I added some fresh lemon juice to the orzo to give it a little more flavor. I also used diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil. Next time I'll add some fresh spinach and a bit of red pepper flake to give it a little kick. We'll definately be having this again!

  • CHBrown Posted: 05/04/09

    I thought this dish was great and healthy. I would definitely make it again with a couple of tweaks. I would use Italian flavored tomatoes for a little more flavor. I would add a little fresh lemon juice to the dish when you serve it. I will definitely make this again. Very good!

  • Rapunzel Posted: 04/28/09

    This recipe was fabulous! I used fresh herbs from my garden instead of dried, really provided an extra punch! Such an easy recipe yet tasted as if I'd slaved over it all day. I didn't have Feta so I substituted Parmesan, was still delicious! Even my junk-food lovin' boyfriend gobbled it up, LOL! I'm having the leftovers for lunch today, can't wait!

  • rickar Posted: 06/06/09

    EXCELLENT. I will add to my best recipe list. Great to serve to company. I would add a little more salt and pepper. I served a salad with this dish.

  • CarolCH Posted: 06/17/09

    I made several changes to this recipe, changing it from Light fare to having much more substance. I used the juice of one lemon and 20 shrimp. I did not use the cooking spray. I used the entire small bottle of clam juice and cooking wine instead of opening a bottle for just 1 tablespoon. For the tomatoes I used the petite cut with oil and basil and for the Feta I used 6 ounces. I did not use parsley. I also added a 10 ounce package of diced spinach. I added all the ingredients together except for the shrimp and feta and let it simmer covered while I prepared the orzo. When the orzo was finished I added the shrimp to the pot and stirred until just beginning to turn pink. I then crumbled the feta on top, covered it and let it simmer until the shrimp was cooked and the feta was melted. YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This was easy and delicious. Served with orzo and roasted eggplant and peppers. Followed the recipe exactly. Wouldn't change a thing!

    I was impressed with how yummy this recipe came out. The prep time was a little longer than I typically like to spend on a weeknight meal but the end result was a beautiful, decently portioned meal. I used 3/4 lb shrimp & 3/4 lb bay scallops but that's just because it's what I had in the freezer, next time I would use all shrimp as the scallops overcooked in the oven. I also used better than bouillon clam base instead of clam juice. I served this with the recommended herb orzo which was delicious as well. I would make this again.

    I was really excited to make this because my husband loves feta cheese. I made it to bring to him at his work (firefighter, works crazy shifts) so I got to try it first before anyone else. I was very pleased. Then I brought it to him at his work and he loved it. He told me I had to save this recipe. 2 of his coworkers tried it and they both loved it as well. I didnt have white wine so i substituted ginger ale for it (saw online that thats a sub. for white win) and it still tasted great. I will definitely be making it again.

    I haven't made this yet, since I had a couple questions. Does anyone know if there's a sub for clam juice? I'm really not a fan of clams. Also has anyone shortened the cooking time by using cooked shrimp and just baking until warmed through?

  • carrollburney Posted: 05/26/12
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This was SO delicious! You don't really need the clam juice & wine - couldn't tell and they are not ingredients I have on-hand often. My family loved it - even my 6 year old. I used a whole container of reduced-fat feta and it was still very low in calories. I would definitely recommend it!

  • susiegj Posted: 04/20/12

    HollyMolly, Several other readers used chicken stock or omitted it. You could also just use extra wine. You could also use a seafood base (Better Than Bouillon), OR make your own (easy). Just take the shells from the shrimp, toast in the oven or a dry skillet (optional), then put in a small pan & cover with water. Simmer it down to reduce, strain, and use. If you have extra, freeze it in 2T portions to use for this recipe again. Hope this helps!

    so simple! I had fresh oregano on hand so I used that. Popped my shrimp shells in the freezer to keep until I have enough to make a small batch of stock.

  • athornbu Posted: 07/04/12

    Has potential. The flavors were very one dimensional. The herb orzo suggestion was okay, lacked flavor. Ok dish. I probably will not make again. The shrimp tomato feta over linguine recipe is by far a better execution of this flavor combo.

  • Shellyhursey Posted: 04/19/12

    This was awesome! I prepared it in a cast iron pan and then baked in the same dish....one less to wash! I followed directions in recipe except I used dried basil in the orzo ....but not as much....still great!! I will definitely make again and again!!

  • naanny Posted: 07/03/12

    I thought this was a really easy and delicious recipe. I used an extra garlic clove, eliminated the clam juice (did not have any) and used all wine. Instead of plain feta, I used the herbed feta that is in a jar with oil. Added some red pepper flakes.....yummy.

  • angie1999 Posted: 05/06/12

    I used all wine instead of clam juice. I also added a bag of spinach. VERY good. The orzo is tasty too.

  • jspicest Posted: 10/19/13

    Pretty good and very pretty looking. It didn't stand up well as leftovers, though, so I would only make it when you think you'll eat it all.

  • daneanp Posted: 08/13/13

    Delicious and easy. I added some red pepper flakes just to spice it up a bit. Fire roasted tomatoes would be good too. I did make the orzo side dish but changed it up a bit. Cooked the orzo then drained. Melted 1 T butter in the saucepan and added minced garlic and shallot, cooked for 1 minute. Then tossed in a couple cups of baby spinach, about a tablespoon of lemon juice, and steamed for a couple of minutes. Then added the orzo, some turkish oregano, some dried basil, shredded parmesean, salt and pepper to taste. It went quite well with the shrimp dish. Definitely will have this on our regular rotation.
