  4. Spread out the dough on a baking sheet (9" x 13" or 20 x 30 cm) greased with butter or lined with parchment paper.

Turkish baked shrimp

  1. Keep the oven going at 400°F (200°C).
  2. Finely chop tomatoes, paprika and garlic and saute in olive oil.
  3. Add tomato paste and a few tablespoons of water and let it simmer for a few minutes.
  4. Add dill, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  5. If you're using raw shrimp, fry them in oil for a couple of minutes on each side. Otherwise put them directly in a baking dish and cover with the tomato sauce.
  6. Top with crumbled feta cheese and olive oil. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes and serve immediately with freshly baked sesame bread.

Tip!

The bread keeps in the fridge for 2-3 days. You can also freeze it for a quick and easy future treat. Reheat it in a warm oven or microwave. You can even use the toaster for additional crispiness!
