Ingredients
  1. 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  2. 1/3 cup orange juice
  3. 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
  4. 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  5. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  8. 4 pounds peeled and deveined fresh shrimp
  9. Wooden skewers, soaked in water to cover for 30 minutes
  10. 1/2 cup butter, melted
Instructions
  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine oil, orange juice, basil, lime juice, garlic, salt, and crushed red pepper. Add shrimp; seal bag, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 4 hours.
  2. Spray grill rack with nonstick nonflammable cooking spray. Preheat grill to high heat (500°). Thread shrimp on skewers, discarding marinade. Brush shrimp with melted butter.
  3. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until shrimp are pink and firm. Serve hot or room temperature.
Notes
  1. The acid from the orange and lime juices starts to “cook” the shrimp after a while, so don’t marinate this dish longer than suggested or the texture will be rubbery.
