Shrimp Saganaki is a quick and easy Greek appetizer that is often served with crusty bread to scoop up the savory tomato sauce. For a gluten-free main course, serve on a bed of cooked zucchini noodles, rice, or quinoa instead.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15-20 minutes
- 3 T. extra virgin olive oil
