Since I was serving lots of appetizers, I allowed one skewer of shrimp per guest, but this makes an excellent main course dish (serve with saffron rice and fresh, steamed asparagus).

Grilled Mediterranean Shrimp

Peel, devein and butterfly shrimp. (I've only recently started to butterfly shrimp for skewering...I've found that it provides a larger surface area for the marinade to do its work.) Combine the remaining ingredients in a Ziploc bag. Add shrimp and allow to marinate for 2 hours.Remove shrimp from marinade. Place 3 shrimp on each skewer. Grill till completely cooked, with no gray color remaining. Serve immediately.
