Ron's Grilled Shrimp


Shrimp is cooked in a grill basket after it's been marinated in a sensational medley of citrus juices, garlic, cilantro, parsley, and basil. If you don't have a grill basket, thread shrimp onto metal or soaked wooden skewers. When cooking, be sure to turn the skewers over once during cooking.
