Top-ranked recipe named "Garides Tourkolimano (Greek Shrimp)"
Garides tourkolimano are prawns cooked in a tomato, garlic, herb and wine sauce that is finished off with feta cheese. I could not let any of that sauce go to waste so I served the garides tourkolimano with some crusty bread to soak up all of the extra. Of course, I enjoyed the garides tourkolimano with a glass of the Greek white wine that I used in the sauce.
"The picture for this recipe made my mouth water and I had to make it. It was delish but my only complaint would be that there wasn't that much liquid to dip bread in. However it was just as good to scoop up the tomato and the little bit of sauce that was there with some crusty bread. I think personal perference wise people might want to play with the herbs but it is also good as is. Very easy recipe to follow."- punkie569

Jackiechan042003 8 months agoThis dish came out quite bitter... Not sure why. Perhaps it was the arrangement of which things were cooked as well as over cooking the shrimp. Next time I intend to make the 'sauce' first and then throw the shrimp in so they absorb the flavors and aren't cooked twice.
Headkiwi 1 year agoDelicious and simple to make. I added some asparagus and chopped some shallots because I didn't have green onions. And I have to admit I didn't measure the wine! I waited to add the feta until it was plated to avoid it melting too much. I will definitely make it again.

cristoslc 1 year agoI threw in the feta just before serving, after plating the shrimp, instead of mixing it into the sauce directly. Also cut back on the mint, and would recommend adding more wine if you want sauce left over (I was fine without). Goes great with orzo or rice pilaf.
