Grilled Shrimp

Grilled Shrimp

This dish is part 2 of a dish created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was barbecue. While I have main grilled shrimp many times, this is the first time I have used this marinade and it came out absolutely delicious, the shrimp did not need any thing else.

  2. 1/3 Cups Olive Oil
  3. 1/4 Cup Tomato Sauce
  4. 2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  5. 2 Tablespoons Basil Fresh , chopped
  6. 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  8. 1 lb Shrimp
