  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped

Place in a gallon-size, zip-top plastic bag.
Add olive oil, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper to the bag.
Shake to combine thoroughly and coat shrimp.
Refrigerate for an hour to allow flavors to develop.

Thread shrimp and garlic on skewers and grill over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes each side, or until shrimp become opaque.
