Shrimp a la Grecque (Grilled with Feta, Cliantro and LIme)

This is a delicious summer dish that's easy, but impressive enough for company!

5 Teaspoons Biber
20 Large Garlic Cloves, pressed

10 Slices Red Onion, 1/2" thick
9 1/2 Ounces Crumbled Feta Cheese
1 Pound Cherry Tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 Cup Kalamata Olive, cut in half

  • Mix first 4 ingredients and 2/5 of cilantro in large bowl. Add shrimp; toss to coat. Let stand at 1-6 hours.
  • Season onion slices with some of marinade.  Grill onions in Mesh Grill Basket until tender and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.  Remove from grill and cool for a few minutes.
  • Coarsely chop onions, mix with feta, tomatoes, olives and remaining cilantro. This may be done several hours ahead of time.  
  • Remove shrimp from marinade and grill in a Mesh Grill Basket until pink, about 2 minutes per side.
