See the RecipeTodd Coleman

The Greek dish_ garides saganaki,_ a bubbling concoction of shrimp, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and feta spiked with a shot of ouzo, was invented in the 1950s, most likely at a restaurant in a seaport like Thessaloniki. Some flambeed the dish tableside, popularizing it among tourists. It's now a standard on Greek menus, and quick and satisfying to make at home.—Diane Kochilas, from "Seaside Saganaki" (June/July 2005)
