  1. In a mixing bowl, mix together olive oil, parsley, lemon juice, hot sauce, garlic, tomato paste, oregano, salt, and black pepper. Reserve a small amount for basting later. Pour remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag with shrimp. Seal, and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  2. Preheat grill for medium-low heat. Thread shrimp onto skewers, piercing once near the tail and once near the head. Discard marinade.
  3. Lightly oil grill grate. Cook shrimp for 5 minutes per side, or until opaque, basting frequently with reserved marinade.

Concerned for hubby's sensitive innards, I decreased the amounts of oregano and hot sauce just a little as I thought both would simply make the shrimp too "hot," at least for him. Not to worry! ...

I am not a big shrimp fan but my husbadn is -- these were outstanding. But, i marinated for about 4 hours, cooked for only 3 minutes per side to not overdo, and did not baste as it flared up to...

Absolutely delicious!! I wouldn't change a thing. For those worried about wasting tomato paste, you can do what I do and freeze it in tablespoon amounts. Drop tablespoons full on a waxed pape...
