Shrimp with Zucchini, Tomatoes and Feta!

Hello all!

I am finally back to cooking!  I haven't washed a dish or pan in about 4 weeks, can you believe it?  Luckily, between all of the walking and hiking up towers, none of the pastries that I ate didn't pack on a single pound!  I came in right at the exact same weight, to a tenth of a pound.  That's crazy!

Still, I'm pretty sure that I'm a bit thicker in the middle and lost some of my arm muscle.  Ick.  So what does that mean?  Back to healthy recipes (and the gym)!

I actually made this recipe before I left for my trip, because it's so easy with most of the ingredients coming from my freezer, pantry, and garden.  No grocery shopping?  Yes!



Shrimp with Zucchini, Tomatoes and Feta

Adapted from here


Ingredients

Olive oil
1 medium zucchini, diced
1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound frozen shrimp, thawed
1 Tbsp. fresh oregano, minced
1 Tbsp. fresh basil, minced
Salt & pepper, to taste
1/4 cup water
Feta, for sprinkling






Directions

1. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

2. Add the tomatoes, zucchini, and garlic to the pan.  Cook about 3 minutes.

3. Add shrimp and sauté 1 to 2 minutes, until warmed through.

4. Add the oregano, basil, salt and pepper.  You may reserve some of the herbs for sprinkling over the finished dish, if you prefer fresh herbs.

5. Stir in the water and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

6. Serve immediately and sprinkle with as much Feta as desired.  Enjoy!
