An easy, amazing one-skillet dinner. Shrimp and feta with a swirl of olive oil, butter and garlic and fresh basil on top. Serve with garlic bread to soak up the deliciousness.
If you're tired of the same old dinner recipes and can't think of anything new to make, turning to the Barefoot Contessa for inspiration is never a bad idea. When I saw this video of Ina Garten making garlic and herb roasted shrimp, of course I had to make it. My 8-year-old and I were both mesmerized by the swirling butter and garlic and giant, perfectly roasted shrimp.
Ina Garten's recipes are usually fairly simple and always good. This is because the woman doesn't skimp, ever. Did you watch how she casually melted an entire stick of butter with 6 cloves of minced garlic and $40 worth of colossal shrimp for a casual weeknight dinner?
That is why I love Ina Garten.
But alas, I am not Ina. I really wanted to melt and entire stick of butter for dinner, but I just couldn't do it. I couldn't spend $40 on shrimp, either. But I promise you, this shrimp and feta garlic bread does not disappoint. It's inspired by Ina, but meant for real people like you and me.
This is not a side dish - It's main course garlic bread.
Serve salad on the side if you must, but otherwise this recipe is a filling one-skillet dinner. The dish looks amazing and is worthy of a fancy dinner party. But as my family ripped apart chunks of bread and dragged them through the buttery, garlicky olive oil and feta, I realized that it's also a perfect, casual summer meal.
I guarantee that at some point, someone will dip their bread directly into the skillet and drag it around. It's just too hard to resist. Keep a big pile of napkins on the table, or just look away while your kids keep licking their buttery fingers.

This dinner couldn't be easier to make. Here's what you do:
- Melt olive oil, butter and garlic in a skillet.
- Add shrimp, crumbled feta and a little lemon zest.

It's so good! And so easy to make.
One skillet, 12 minutes, and dinner is done. Thank you, Ina!
