3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

1 to 2 tablespoon capers
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1/8 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or basil, plus additional for garnish


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant but not browned, about 1 minute. Stir in shrimp, feta, lemon juice, capers, salt and pepper.
