Grilled Shrimp with Feta

It seems as if I've been posting nothing but shrimp dishes lately. Well, here's another one! I love shrimp for a few reasons: (a) it's cheap (b) it cooks quickly (c) I grill it as to avoid standing over the stove during the crazy heat of South Florida's summer. And of course I mean that hubbs grills the shrimp :)

This was another quick weeknight dinner. This recipe makes enough for 4 servings, allowing us to have shrimp over a salad for lunch the next day. I served the shrimp with whole wheat couscous and steamed asparagus.

Grilled Shrimp with Feta Topping

24 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 Tbsp. oregano
1/4 c. fat free crumbled Feta
zest of one lemon
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp olive oil

In a bowl, combine 1 Tbsp oregano with 1 Tbsp lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Allow shrimp to marinate in mixture for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine remaining lemon juice, lemon zest, and oregano with the feta cheese. Mix well and set aside.

Grill the shrimp, spraying cooking spray (Pam) on the grill before cooking. Top with cheese and serve!
