Prep:

35 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

1/3 c
basil, fresh
2 Tbsp
oregano, fresh
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
pepper
3
garlic cloves, halved
2 1/2 tsp
olive oil
1 1/2 lb
shrimp, large and peeled
cooking spray

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Start by pre-soaking your wooden skewers. If using metal or broiling you can skip this obviously...
2
Combine first five ingredients in food processor; pulse until mixture is coarsely chopped.
3
Add olive oil and process until well blended.
4
Combine herb mixture and shrimp in a large zip lock bag and toss to coat.
5
Marinate shrimp in fridge for 30 minutes. Marinating any longer than 1 hr. can result in rubbery shrimp.
6
Go and pre-heat your grill, use upper rack if you have one. If broiling go ahead and start pre-heating your oven.
7
Remove shrimp from bag and thread onto skewers, you should have at least 6 shrimp to a skewer.
8
Place skewers on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill three minutes on each side or until done. Make sure and DO NOT over cook, or you will have dry, chewy shrimp.
9
I like to serve these with flavored rice and a salad. Enjoy !
