Charcoal Grilled Shrimp

Makes: about 60 shrimp


2 pounds large shrimp in the shell

1/3 cup safflower oil

1/2 cup fresh lime juice

3 tablespoons dry white wine or vermouth

1 tablespoon minced shallots or green onions (white part only)

1 clove garlic minced

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh dill

Several dashes Tabasco® sauce

Place shrimp in a shallow ceramic or glass baking dish. Combine remaining ingredients, and pour over shrimp, reserving about a quarter cup for brushing while cooking. Cover, and chill several hours or overnight. Drain the shrimp.

Thread shrimp on skewers, or place in a wire grill basket. Grill shrimp over hot coals, turning and brushing with reserved marinade, until pink and cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve with wooden picks.
