    Deliciously spicy! Used feta cheese. Was delicious

    I lightly blend the tomatillo/onion/jalapeno mixture in a food processor after it has cooked for several minutes. And if pressed for time, I shred up one of those cooked rotisserie chickens from the supermarket and throw in the meat (omitting the shrimp). Then there’s no need to bake. I’ve used canned tomatillos on occasion as well and haven’t noticed a marked difference vs fresh.

    It’s very tasty. A dish with enough vegetables. The feta makes it so good. Thank you for posting this page!
    Here are the changes of mine-
    shrimp- imitation crab torn in halves
    oil- no oil, earlier introduction of tomatillos
    jalepeno chilis- habanero peppers not cut fried with onions onwards
    black pepper- chili powder
    cilantro- 1/3 the amount in dried cilantro

    Hi Elise. Fantastic recipe! I’d just bought a batch of tomatillos, not sure what to do with them but loved the colors. I also write a blog about food and wanted to feature them somehow, and was able to do so using this recipe as a basis. It came out wonderfully. I tweaked it a bit, as all of us cooks do, but your recipe was credited on my blog at so thanks for the inspiration!

    Elise, this recipe has become one of our all time favorites! I subscribe to your blog and it popped up in my email a few years ago. My hubby and I made it and WOW it was a HUGE hit. We make this about 6 – 7 times a year or more! It’s my go to recipe anytime I see shrimp on sale. I asked my hubby what did he want to make with the shrimp we just bought. I gave him a list of out most favorite shrimp recipes. He said “you can go wrong with Shrimp with Tomatillo’s!”. I agreed! Just wanted you to know how much we appreciate you posting this recipe! It introduced us to tomatillo’s which we had never had before! It is truly one of our all time favorites! NOM NOM NOM!!! Thank you!!
