Grilled Mediterranean Shrimp
I love easy dinners that taste so good. Grilling makes summer meals quick, easy and delicious. Marinate the shrimp ahead infusing the flavors transports me back to visits to the Mediterranean sea. The secret to all the meals that I love to make is fresh produce and herbs. An easy touch yet so important to creating flavor and texture in food.
2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and cleaned
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
juice of one lemon
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh basil, thinly chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 tablespoon capers
Place shrimp and tomatoes in medium bowl. In a small bowl combine remaining ingredients. Pour over shrimp and tomatoes. Refrigerate for 8 hours or over night. Heat grill to high. Drain shrimp and tomatoes, reserving the marinate. Place shrimp and tomatoes in a pan designed to use on an outdoor grill. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until shrimp is no longer translucent. While grilling continue to brush shrimp with reserved marinate. Serve hot.
