Grilled Marinated Shrimp ll

I LOVE this shrimp! I used (defrosted) frozen shrimp and the texture didn't suffer any. My 10 year old asks for thirds and my 2 year old asks for "moooore!". Makes 2 lb shrimp. Serve with a steamed veggie or salad and cheesy garlic bread swirls or any bread , rice or pasta you'd like. YUM.

Grilled Marinated Shrimp ll (read, "the second," because it's so distinguished)

2 lb raw shrimp
1/3 c olive oil
1/4 c tomato sauce
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

1. Peel and devein shrimp, if necessary. Set aside.
2. Mix oil, tomato sauce, vinegar, basil, salt and cayenne pepper in bowl or large ziplock bag. Add shrimp and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes to an hour, flipping shrimp once or twice.
3. Spray grill and preheat to medium heat. Slide shrimp onto skewers, piercing near tail and head.Cook shrimp on preheated grill until opaque, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
