Grilled Lemon Garlic Shrimp

2 pounds of shrimp. Peeled and deveined

1 tablespoon dried basil

2 ½ gloves garlic (minced)

½ of lemon, juiced

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/3 tablespoon red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper to taste

10 – 12 Wooden Skewers

1 lemon cut into wedges for serving

Mix all ingredients together. Marinating is optional. If you’d like to marinate, you can let the ingredients meld together in the refrigerator for up to 6 hours. Skewer the shrimp onto wooden skewers diving the number of shrimp per skewer as you like.

On a preheated grill or grilling pan place skewered shrimp and cook 4 – 5 minutes per side or until shrimp is cooked through. Cooking time will depend on the size of your shrimp.

Serve with extra lemon on the side
