Can you guess which cheese is a favorite flavor enhancer in many, many dishes? Here's a hint: It's a star in this dish. You guessed it... feta cheese! This Shrimp with Feta Cheese dish brings out the best of the flavors in both the shrimp and the cheese. You can't miss with this dish!

- 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano

What to Do
- Peel shrimp, and devein, if desired; set shrimp aside.
- Cook green onions and parsley in hot oil in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until onion is tender. Stir in tomatoes and next 3 ingredients; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to Broil. Add clam juice to vegetable mixture; cook 5 more minutes. Pour mixture into 7- x 11-inch baking dish; set aside.

I have a weak spot for feta cheese and tomatoes, and I think I've found the perfect dish to show 'em off! Ladle the shrimp into soup bowls to catch all the flavorful juices that are released as the mixture cooks. Serve it over rice, pasta, or just with bread to enjoy all of the sauce!
