Simple, saucy, and scrumptious—that’s the name of the game with this easy shrimp dinner. The rich, brothy base is made of tomatoes, vegetables, onions, and green beans; finish by cooking the shrimp until just tender. Topped with feta and fresh dill, the dish is reminiscent of a cool night at a restaurant on a Greek island. Hey, you can dream it, at least, and all from the comfort of your kitchen. Stay on theme and seek out a Greek wine made from grapes like Assyritiko or Malagousia. Serve with garlic- and oil-rubbed toasted bread for dipping in the sauce.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and potatoes. Add green beans, 1 cup water, dill, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper in an even layer over tomato mixture (do not stir). Reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook, undisturbed, for 25 minutes.

  • Uncover pot, stir in shrimp, and season with remaining ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are pink and cooked through, vegetables are tender, and tomato sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Top with dill and feta, if desired.
