Greek-Style Shrimp and Potatoes


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.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped

  • 5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 28-oz. can fire-roasted diced tomatoes

  • 1 24-oz. pkg. baby Yukon Gold potatoes, halved crosswise

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, plus more for serving

  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt, divided

  • ¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

  • 1 ½ pounds peeled and deveined large raw shrimp

  • Crumbled feta cheese, for serving (optional)


  1. 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.

  2. 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.
