4 servings (serving size: 2 skewers and 4 teaspoons feta)

These skewers are great served over hot couscous or orzo. Complement this dish with a side of steamed asparagus or zucchini. The lemon-herb feta would also be a delightful accompaniment to grilled fish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Soak wooden skewers in water 30 minutes.

Step 2

Thread 3 shrimp onto each skewer, and place skewers in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish.

Step 3

Combine 1 teaspoon olive oil, 2 teaspoons oregano, lemon rind, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; pour over skewers, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes.

Step 4

Prepare grill.

Step 5

Place skewers on grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill 5 to 6 minutes or until done, turning skewers occasionally.

Step 6

Combine remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon oregano, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and feta cheese; toss gently.

Step 7

Remove shrimp from grill, and place 2 skewers on each of 4 plates. Top evenly with lemon-herb feta.
