This versatile Greek Shrimp recipe can be made as a main dish or as an appetizer. I made a double batch of this recipe one night when I was hosting my book club. I needed to made appetizers to serve to book club but also needed to feed my family dinner before my guests arrived. This dish was the perfect solution. I made a double batch; I served one batch to my family over pasta, and stored the second batch in the refrigerator until I was ready to bake it for book club.

½ teaspoon dried oregano

I made your Greek shrimp a few nights ago and it was so delicious and easy. My boyfried and daughter both gobbled it up and said it looked like it belonged on a magazine cover. Thank you so much for sharing you dinner ideas. I love your site!!
