Grilled Shrimp

A few weekends ago (2?) we went to Lord & Lady B's for a gathering with some friends. We had a great time and great food. Lord & Lady B served some grilled shrimp that were really great. A recipe that came from Lady B's Uncle Jay*.

*which might be a Williams Sonoma recipe?

Here's the recipes:

3 TB olive oil
2 TB tomato paste
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined

* Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. A whisk helps to blend the ingredients quickly.
* Add the shrimp and mix until the shrimp are completely coated.
* Put a covering on the bowl and refrigerate for about an hour before you intend to grill.
* Thread the shrimp on skewers. If you use wooden skewers, soak them in water first so that they do not burn.
* Grill 6-10 minutes turning two - three times or until the shrimp are pink all over.

Aw, thanks for posting Jay's recipe. He is smiling down on you!

Just for the benefit of your readers, we tripled this for three pounds of shrimp for six people - just to give an idea of amounts (keep in mind that this was the main course, so if you serve it with something else you may not need as much shrimp).
