#3912 - Grilled Marinated Shrimp Skewers

(by Shirley McNevich)

3 minced garlic cloves
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup tomato sauce
2 TBSP red wine vinegar
2 TBSP chopped fresh basil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2lbs. fresh shrimp
bamboo skewers
Old Bay seasoning (optional)

Wash, peel and devein the shrimp. In a large bowl add minced garlic, olive oil, tomato sauce, red wine vinegar, chopped basil, salt, and cayenne pepper--mix well. Add the shrimp to the bowl--toss to coat. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Carefully thread the shrimp on the skewers and place them on a pre-heated outdoor grill. DISCARD the marinade left in the bowl. Cook the skewers 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the shrimp are done. Optional: when you place the shrimp skewers on the grill, lightly sprinkle Old Bay on the tops of the shrimp, then repeat after you turn the shrimp.
