Shrimp with Spinach and Feta Cheese

User Rating 3.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


The feta cheese and spinach mingle nicely with the lemon-spiked shrimp. Serve this shrimp dish with baked potatoes or a rice dish for a nice everyday meal.


  • 12 to 16 ounces peeled and deveined medium shrimp
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons dried crumbled oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups fresh spinach leaves, stems removed
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, cut into 1/2-inch pieces


Place shrimp in a bowl. Combine lemon juice, oregano, salt, and pepper; pour over shrimp. Cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes. Drain, reserving marinade. Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Add shrimp and saute for 2 minutes. Remove shrimp with slotted spoon; set aside. Pour reserved marinade into the pan then add the spinach. Cover and cook for 2 minutes. Return shrimp to pan and crumble feta over top; cover and cook 2 minutes longer, until shrimp is cooked through.

As it stands this recipe gets 4 stars but I added a large onion, 3 cloves of garlic and 1/2 an orange pepper. Instead of salt I used Mrs. Dash. This is now a 5 in our family.
