Shrimp with Rice / Garides Pilafi

A wonderful one-pot meal which can also be a "something special" dinner.



1 kilo Shrimps or Prawns, rinsed and cleaned    1 cup of mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup olive oil 1 cup of crushed tomatoes
1 medium onion Salt and pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed 1 tsp. oregano
1 cup of celery, chopped 3 cups of long grain rice
1 cup of red pepper or pimento, chopped 1 cup of crumbled feta cheese

In a large saucepan, heat the oil. Brown the onions and garlic until translucent. Add the celery, red pepper and mushrooms and cook all together until the vegetables have softened. Add the tomatoes and spices and cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat, then add the rice and the shrimp. Give it all a good stir, and let it simmer for about 15 minutes. You will have to keep an eye on it, and add water as necessary until it is absorbed and the rice is cooked to your preference. A few minutes before it's done, fold in the feta cheese.

Susie's Note: You can choose to peel the shrimp before cooking, or leave them with their shells on to be removed when you are actually eating this dish. I personally prefer the latter, as I have found that the shells add that much more flavor to this recipe. Keep a supply of napkins handy, it gets messy but it's "finger licking good".
