2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of coarse salt
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons lemon juice
Black pepper (to taste)

1. Soak Bamboo skewers, 15 minutes submerged in water.
2. Preheat grill for medium heat.
3. In a bowl, crush the garlic and add in the salt. {I use a mortar and pestle but if you don’t have one the backend of a spoon works very well}.
4. Mix in cayenne pepper and paprika.
5. Stir in the olive oil and lemon juice to form the marinade.
6. In separate bowl, toss shrimp and add in the marinade. Make sure to spread the love and evenly coat each one.
6. Lightly oil the top of the grill. Cook shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until pink.
