  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup oregano leaves loosely packed
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds large shrimp in the shell, deveined


  • Prepare a medium-high fire on your grill.
  • In a small food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine the garlic, salt, and oregano and process until they are minced. With the machine running, slowly pour in the olive oil. Process until it is well blended.
  • Reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade for basting. In a large bowl toss the shrimp the remaining marinade.
  • Oil the grill grate. Remove the shrimp from the marinade and arrange them directly over the fire. Grill for about 5-7 minutes turning once. (I just put them in a big grill basket and kind of tossed them around - I wasn't going to risk having one fall through the grate). Baste the shrimp with the reserved marinade as they grill. Transfer to serving bowl.
  • Let the diners peel their own shrimp!
