Print this recipe here: /

Serves 4:
1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
Salta and pepper to taste
2-3 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, grated
12-ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained
1 tablespoon sundried tomatoes packed in oil
¾-1 cup heavy whipping cream
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons finely sliced scallions
Shredded parmesan to garnish
Fresh basil leaves as garnish

Season the shrimp lightly with salt and pepper on both sides.
Heat a pot over medium high heat and add the olive oil. Place the shrimp in an even layer inside the pot. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until pink all around. If shrimp are overcrowding the pot sear them in 2 batches. Take the shrimp out and set in a plate.
Reduce the heat to low and add the onions along with the butter and a pinch of salt. Cook until soft and golden. 6-8 minutes. If onions begin to brown too fast add ½ cup of water to the pot and cook until the water evaporates, and the onions have softened.
Puree the roasted red peppers with the sundried tomatoes until smooth.
Add garlic and warm through 30-40 seconds.
Add pureed peppers along with the heavy cream and paprika. Season with salt and the red pepper flakes.
Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the sauce thickens. About 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
Add the crumbled feta along with the shrimp and warm the shrimp through 4- 5 minutes or until fully cooked.
Garnish with scallions and basil and serve over zoodles or pasta.
