Ingredients

  • 12 jumbo shrimp, (6-8 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium bulb fennel, cored and finely chopped
  • 5 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 small chile pepper, such as jalapeño or serrano seeded and minced
  • 1/2 cup Chardonnay, preferably Greek
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, preferably Greek
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. Toss shrimp with 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a medium bowl and sprinkle with salt.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet (or “saganaki” pan) over medium heat. Add fennel, scallions and chile pepper and cook, stirring, until soft and beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in wine. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Place the shrimp on top of the fennel mixture, cover and cook until the shrimp are pink and just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  3. Transfer the shrimp to a plate. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice, feta and pepper to the pan and stir until the cheese begins to melt, about 1 minute. Serve the shrimp atop the fennel mixture.
