Feta, oregano, and fresh mint make this succulent shrimp dish feel decidedly Mediterranean.

I can't understand why this doesn't have higher ratings. I've been making this for a few years now as one of our go-to's, always a hit for a quick family meal or even for company for surprise guests. It's colorful, easy to make and delicious. And I do as another reviewer suggested - why dirty another dish? put the skillet in the oven. :)

My husband and I loved this recipe. Super tasty. I added some fresh spinach along with the mint for a little health boost. I will absolutely make this again.

"Transfer to an 8-inch square (or other shallow 2-quart) baking dish. " Why can't you just put your skillet into the oven?

My husband made this for dinner (with the fresh mint) and it was delicious! My 2 year old even liked it. I will definitely make it again.

I loved the tomatoes in this dish. I'm not a huge shrimp fan so I made this with some petrale and it was very good. I also substituted basil for the mint (didn't have mint on hand) but am going to try it again with the mint (I love mint in savory food, not so much in sweet foods). The tomatoes were sooooo good. I would make them alone and use on top of grilled chicken or other fish. I liked the orzo as well but would add a little garlic next time.

I didn't use mint either. I know my husband wouldn't like it. I used fresh basil. This meal was easy and very good. Alone the orzo was a little bland but mixed with the shrimp sauce, it was very good...

I went ahead and used the mint, but it was dried. It didn't taste bad, and I'm sure mint lovers will love it, but I think for not being too fond of mint flavored dinner foods (love it sweetened in desserts), I would go with the suggested basil.

Use basil instead of mint

I also used basil instead of mint and it was delicious. I mixed the orzo with sauted, shredded zucchini and it made a great side.
