Grilled shrimp only take about 5 minutes to cook, and if you have the fish market clean them for you, about 5 minutes to prepare. Tossing them with a lot of garlic and cilantro is one of my favorite marinades.
2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on
1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Toss shrimp with olive oil, garlic, cilantro and salt. Set aside to marinate for about 30 minutes. Heat grill very hot. Arrange shrimp on grill in a single layer and cook until opaque on underside, about 1-3 minutes. Turn shrimp over and cook another 1-3 minutes until just cooked through.
