It's hard to believe that we've come this far and never gotten around to sharing one of our very favorite fast and easy dinners. If you enjoy seafood and tomatoes, then brace yourself, because once you make this Greek shrimp recipe, your life might just change forever. This dinner in under 60 has been the darling of just about everyone in our office, and for good reason.
Inflecting the tomato sauce with allspice, cinnamon, feta, and dill lends the dish a whole new kind of exoticism that you're bound to love when craving the spices of South Asian and Middle Eastern cooking. I like the allspice element so much that I double the amount that's called for and then offer it over a pile of lightly oiled orzo. Any way you serve it, this is good eating, and the recipe is right this way.
