Ingredients

    1/4-inch cubes cucumber 1 cup
    baby spinach leaves 8 cups
    chopped fresh dill 3 tablespoons
    chopped shallots (or green onions) 2 tablespoons
    fresh lemon juice 2 tablespoons
    plus additional for drizzling
    uncooked large shrimp 1 pound
    aniseed, finely crushed 1 1/4 teaspoons
    olive oil
    crumbled feta cheese 3/4 cup
    greek-style (2% or nonfat) yogurt* 1 cup


Directions

Mix Greek-style yogurt, cucumber, dill, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, shallots, and 3/4 teaspoon crushed aniseed in small bowl; season tzatziki generously with salt and pepper. Chill.

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Brush grill with oil. Thread shrimp onto 4 metal skewers. Brush shrimp all over with olive oil; sprinkle with salt, pepper, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon crushed aniseed. Grill just until shrimp are opaque in center, about 3 minutes per side. Divide spinach among 4 plates; drizzle lightly with additional lemon juice and olive oil. Top each with 1 shrimp skewer. Spoon tzatziki over shrimp; sprinkle with feta cheese and serve.

*A thick yogurt; sold at some supermarkets and at specialty foods stores (such as Trader Joe's and Whole Foods markets) and Greek markets. If unavailable, place plain yogurt in cheesecloth-lined strainer set over large bowl. Cover and chill overnight to drain.
