    I only used half the oil and didn't use the salt at all, but I doubled the chilis!! Awesome! This will be on my regular rotation, for sure! - 4/13/09

    Yes, I found this recipe on Epicurious.com also. It is very saucy so make sure you have plenty of bread to sop up the juices. Actually, I served it with Ronald Regan's Rancho Rice & a small green salad! You know a good recipe when you see one! - 12/31/08

    Looks good, but the olive oil isn't calculated into the total. I started to do a recipe makeover and reduce the olive oil, but found there isn't any olive oil at all in the list of ingredients. If you make this as written, it's 331 calories, not 241. - 7/9/12

    Decent but reminded me of a Shrimp Diablo than something Greek. Red Pepper was the dominant flavor, I thought it was way too much sauce and I thought the oven was an unnecessary second step. Shrimp cooks so fast, why not toss it into the simmering sauce and cut your time in half? - 3/6/11

    Made this last night for dinner, my 17 yr old son RAVED about it, we were a little cautious of the cinnamon with shrimp but this dish was absolutely divine, its going to be a new regular at our dinner table for certain. We served it with a greek salad, some hummus and cilantro rice. Yummy!! - 3/25/10

    This is delicious--just the right blend of spices. It is very soupy, though, so next time I think I'll be serving it over orzo or rice. I do agree with the other comments that only one tablespoon of oil is needed. - 9/27/11

    This was really good! The only change I made was to cook the shrimp in the saucepan on the stove instead of in the oven . . . In Texas, you avoid the oven in the summer whenever possible! - 6/17/12

    OK, since I live alone, I would make the sauce & freeze in serving size, then when ready to eat, take 1 serving of sauce, 1/4 the amt of shrimp & feta & bake. I would leave out the salt (all seafood is salty) and use coconut oil not olive oil. I might add a teaspoon of olive oil before serving. - 4/21/12

    I absolutely love this. I made it with only 1T oil and reduced fat feta. I could only find cooked frozen shrimp so I skipped the baking step and just did all on the stovetop. The flavors were really excellent. I served it with couscous and roasted broccoli. - 4/26/12

    Nice recipe. My husband and I really enjoyed it. I completely omitted the olive oil and used a no salt added 16 oz can of diced tomatoes which worked out really well. Served it on top of brown rice. I will definitely make thia again. - 3/12/12

  • I left out, the salt, and the chili flakes. I want to try again with the salt and maybe half the chili. It was good, but not great. - 8/28/13

  • Fabulous! Loved the flavor, and it was easy to prepare. I cooked it all in a non-stick skillet rather than using the oven (added the feta at the same time as the shrimp), and served it over brown rice. As others suggested, used only 1T of olive oil; did a Recipe Makeover to correct nutrition info. - 12/10/12

  • I am not a big fan of adding dessert spices to main dishes. I could not get past the allspice flavor. It smelled wonderful, but on shrimp it had issues for me. I did not throw it out, but will not make it again. - 7/4/12

  • Love it! This is a keeper. I didn't add any salt, a very liberal pinch of sugar - more like a tablespoon (to offset the heat). - 7/1/12

  • Ideas from comments. Use only 1 T of oil. Omit feta (don't like feta).Do on stove top with precooked or raw shrimp. Serve over rice with green beans or green salad. Can't wait to try it tonight. - 6/28/12
