Wonderful dinner recipe - Aegean Shrimp Over Rice.

This seafood dinner option tastes GREAT, but it does have a little more fat in it than most of the recipes you’ll find here. One way to reduce that is to go with Reduced- or Non-Fat Feta Cheese. I like it as is, so I try to fix it in on a day I know I’ve been really good.
