    1      pound         Feta cheese -- crumbled
 
 *Use 2-3 cloves if you like the flavor or garlic. Pour lemon juice over 
 cleaned shrimp in bowl and set aside.
 In a skillet saute onions, garlic, celery, parsley and chopped tomatoes in 
 olive oil until onions and celery are tender.  Reduce heat and simmer for 
 about 20 minutes. Add clam juice, cook for another 5 minutes and remove 
 from heat. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. In another pan saute 
 shrimp in butter until they are pink. Pour tomato mixture into bottom of a 
 casserole. Place whole peeled tomato in center and surround with shrimp. 
 Sprinkle entire caserole with oregano. Pour white wine around shrimp and 
 sprinkle feta cheese over them and into tomato center.  Bake in an oven 
 preheated to 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until feta melts.  To serve, 
 remove shrimp carefully with spatula so that melted feta stays intact. 
 Quarter tomato and serve as a garnish.
