Shrimp with Plum Tomatoes, Feta and Basil

I like to use large-sized shrimp for this dish. The combination of flavors is great and this dish also has visual appeal. It’s pretty enough to bring to the table in your best decorative serving dish.

1. Preheat the oven to broil and spray an 8-inch baking dish with cooking oil. Preheat a non-stick grill pan or barbecue to medium-high.

2. Grill the shrimp for approximately 4 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time. Do not overcook. Place in the prepared baking dish.

3. Combine the tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, dried basil, oregano, jalapeño pepper, salt and pepper. Mix well and pour over the shrimp. Sprinkle with the feta. Broil for 2 minutes or just until browned. Remove from the oven.

4. Combine the oil and lemon juice and drizzle over the top. Garnish with the cilantro and serve.
