I adopted this recipe after the original poster left Zaar. I haven't tried the recipe, yet, but will make any necessary edits when I do. The original comments: "From Food and Wine June 2004. I made these for my Memorial day Party and everyone wanted the recipe. They are fabulous! The Feta Dill sauce has a nice clean, summery taste to it."

The amount of feta is incorrect. 2 ounces of feta would not make 2 1/2 cups crumbled, so I assumed it to actually be 1/2 cup.

Made these for a birthday lunch for a friend and they went over very well. The sauce is excellent - and shrimp is always good!
