Shrimp and Feta Soup (aka Shrimp Saganaki Soup)

Shrimp and Feta Soup (aka Shrimp Saganaki Soup)
I always enjoy soups during the fall and today I a recipe for a tasty shrimp and feta soup to share with you! The flavours of this soup are inspired by shrimp saganaki, a Greek dish where shrimp is served in a simple tomato and feta sauce along with bread to scoop it up with. I was thinking that it would be simple to make the same tomato and feta sauce, except more like broth, for a tasty soup! This soup gets all of its amazing flavour from the simple tomato, feta and shrimp combo with accents of garlic and onion and a hint of fennel. All said and done this shrimp and feta soup (aka shrimp saganaki soup) takes less that 30 minutes oto make making it a great option for weeknight dinners and any leftovers are great for lunch to next day!
