Shrimp with Capers, Lemon, and Feta

This is a perfect weeknight meal. You can make it in under 10 minutes easily, but there is nothing rushed about the flavour. The creamy feta sauce is what sets this dish apart. I think it would be perfect served with some fettuccine or other pasta.

Shrimp with Capers, Lemon, and Feta (from Cook This Now)

2 tbsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
450g large shrimp, shelled and cleaned
1/3 cup crumbled feta
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 - 2 tbsp capers
salt and pepper
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro or basil

1. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, 1 minute.
2. Stir in shrimp, feta, lemon juice, capers, and salt and pepper.
3. Cook, stirring, until shrimp is just opaque and sauce thickens, 2 minutes.
4. Add cilantro or basil and stir to combine.
