  • Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tail shell on.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, stirring to combine.
  • Add the shrimp and toss to coat.
  • Marinate at room temperature for about 2 hours, stirring every half hour.
  • Cook the shrimp over hot coals for two to five minutes, turn and cook an additional two to five minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place the marinade in a saucepan and heat over a high flame until the sauce starts to bubble.
  • Or place shrimp in a single layer along with the sauce in a large ovenproof baking dish and place under the broiler for three to five minutes, basting occasionally.
  • Turn the shrimp over and broil an additional three to five minutes.
  • Serve the shrimp in individual bowls along with some of the sauce, or on plates with sauce on the side.
  • The idea is to pick up the shrimp by the tails and dip them in the sauce.
  • Serve with hot Italian or French bread for sopping up the extra sauce.
