Grilled Shrimp with Feta, Cilantro and Lime as adapted from Bon Appetit. I guarantee that you will love this quick dish! I marinated a pound of peeled and deveined shrimp in 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup of lime juice, 3 cloves of crushed garlic and 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro. I sliced one red onion, spooned a little of the marinade from the shrimp overtop and sauteed until softened. I removed the onions and coarsely chopped them. Next, I added the shrimp to the hot pan used for the onions and cook until just done, reserving the marinade. I combined the shrimp with the red onions, cooked orzo, a chopped tomato (I used an orange heirloom), a nice hunk of imported Greek feta (crumbled). I brought the remaining marinade to a quick boil, removed the garlic, and poured it over the shrimp, gave it a toss, and added some extra chopped cilantro. Oh my was this good! This was on the table in less than 30 minutes. The original recipe calls for grilling, more olive oil, and no tomato - it was raining so no grill for me! I could go for this again tonight - yes it was that good!
