Marinated Grilled Shrimp

30 01 2011

This recipe goes great with chicken, steak, or could stand alone on its own. It has a bit of a kick with the cayenne pepper and you can make it as hot as you want by playing with the amount you put in.

 

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

~ 3 cloves garlic, minced

~ 1/3 cup olive oil

~ 1/4 cup tomato sauce

~ 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar

~ 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil

~ 1/2 tsp salt

~ 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

~ 2 pounds fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined (or as much needed for your meal)

~ skewers

 

In a large bowl, stir together the garlic, olive oil, tomato sauce, and red wine vinegar. Season with basil, salt, and cayenne pepper. Save a bit of the marinated to baste shrimp with later. Add shrimp to the bowl, and stir until evenly coated. Cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour, stirring once or twice.

Marinated Shrimp on Skewers

Preheat grill for medium heat. Soak skewers in water for about 10 to 20 minutes so they don’t burn on the grill.  Thread shrimp onto skewers, piercing once near the tail and once near the head. Discard marinade.

Grilled Shrimp

Lightly oil grill grate if necessary. Cook shrimp on preheated grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque.
