"This may be served two ways on toasted baguette slices or as an appetizer on a small bed of lettuce, to serve on bread, brush the bread slices with olive oil (I like to sprinkle a small amount of garlic powder on top or the slices after brushing with oil) place on a large baking sheet, bake 375 degrees F for 8 minutes, spoon 1 heaping tablespoon onto each slice… plan ahead the shrimp needs to cool completely and the prepared mixture needs to chill for at least 2 hours or more before using Amounts are enough for one long sliced baguette cut diagonally into about 1/2-inch slices, if you are serving on lettuce you should get 4 servings but that will depend on the amount you place onto the lettuce, all amounts may be doubled, keeping the garlic amount the same or increase only slightly "

Step 1

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in the whole shrimp and garlic; saute for 3 to 4 minutes until shrimp is cooked (cook shrimp just until pink, do not over cook the shrimp or it will be tough) transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until cold…the shrimp must be cold or the feta will melt. When the shrimp is cold coarsely chop (I usually chop the shrimp into thirds).

Step 2

In a large bowl toss the chopped shrimp with chopped tomatoes, 1 tablespoon olive oil, green onion, feta cheese, parsley, lemon juice, thyme and Greek seasoning. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Top on toasted bread slices or serve on a bed of lettuce.

WOW I served this at a little luncheon and they raved over this starter. It is so different from your usual shrimp cocktail and it has such subtle flavours. It is right up there with my favorites to impress! May 2013 Made again for a friend's birthday party, raves again and they took the recipe home with them. Thanks Kitten for making me look good!
