4 limes
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 pounds (about 40) Large shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails left on)
1/4 cup basil leaves, cut into thin ribbons

using a zesteror peeler, zest 3 limes (about 1 tbls) Place in a glass large dish (large enough to hold the shrimp). Juice those same limes (about 1/2 cup juice) and pour into dish. Add garlic and olive oil, salt and pepper and shrimp. Toss gently and refridgerate for 30-45 minutes. Remove from the fridge 15 minutes before grilling and thread on metal skewers. (4-5 shrimp on a skewer).
Meanwhile, light the grill or heat grill pan over a med-high flame. When they are medium hot, set shrimp on paper towel lined plate (towel will absorbe excess liquid and keep grill from smoking). Then place shrimp on grill. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side until just curled and pink in color. Remove and slide off skewers. Sprinkle with basil. Cut remaining lime into wedges and serve with shrimp.
