      This recipe is wonderful! Everyone that I have served it to loves it. But then I prepare it exactly as written. If you use EVOO, fresh dill and parsley, raw shrimp, fresh lemon, imported feta, etc. you will have a superb dish. I'm always amazed at some of the substitutions people use and their critique of the recipe. There is no way the end product will be as good as the intended recipe with some of these modifications!
