Squeeze the charred lemons over the shrimp before serving for a tangy, smoky hit of flavor. You may want to make extra feta sauce to have with lean lamb steaks or chicken skewers.

  1. 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  2. 1 scallion, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
  3. 4 large garlic cloves, very finely chopped
  4. 2 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped dill
  5. 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces)
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  7. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  8. 2 pounds peeled and deveined large shrimp
  9. 2 lemons, each cut into 12 wedges
  1. Light a grill. In a medium bowl, mix the yogurt with the scallion, 1/4 of the garlic and 1/2 tablespoon of the dill. Stir in the feta, mashing it slightly. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the remaining minced garlic and 2 tablespoons of dill with the olive oil. Add the shrimp and lemons, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Thread 4 shrimp and 2 lemon wedges onto each of 12 skewers. Season with salt and pepper and grill over a medium-hot fire, turning occasionally, until the shrimp are charred and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer the skewers to a platter and serve at once with the feta sauce.
