  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 scallion, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
  • 4 large garlic cloves, very finely chopped
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped dill
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds peeled and deveined large shrimp
  • 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.

Transfer the skewers to a platter and serve at once with the feta sauce.
