Our favorite Greek restaurant in NYC makes a to-die-for shrimp and feta dish. After one bite, we knew we had to hit our test kitchen and come up with a healthier version of this delicious entrée. Shrimp is low in calories, with only 35 per ounce, but it’s the cheese in this dish that spells diet disaster. Feta is often thought of as a waistline-friendly cheese, but just one ounce has 75 calories and 6g of fat. A typical feta dish calls for 6 ounces, that’s an extra 450 calories and 36 grams of fat! So we managed to cut down on the fatty feta, and still stay big on flavor in our version of this yummy Mediterranean dish. Plus, it only takes a few minutes to prepare. Go Greek!
