There’s so much bright flavor from the cherry tomatoes (concentrated bursts of sweetness) and fresh oregano and mint. The shrimp, tomatoes, and feta all cook together in the oven until golden and bubbly. All you’ll need is a simple side of orzo to soak up the sauce. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

4 cloves garlic
¼ oz fresh oregano
¼ oz fresh mint
1 can cherry tomatoes
12 oz peeled and deveined medium shrimp
3 oz feta cheese

freshly ground black pepper
