Preparation Method

  1. Create marinade by combining olive oil, basil, cloves, white wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper in bowl.
  2. Thread 6 shrimp, evenly spaced, onto 12-inch metal skewers.
  3. Place shrimp skewers in 15x10 glass baking dish. Pour all but 1/4 cup marinade over shrimp; turn skewers to coat shrimp fully.
  4. Cover and chill the skewers and the remaining marinade for one hour.
  5. Bring grill to medium-high heat. Grill shrimp until approximately 2 1/2 minutes per side - or until just opaque in center.
  6. When done, place skewers on a platter and spoon the remaining marinade on the shrimp. Serve immediately.
