Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped basil

Step 1

In a large bowl,combine the shallots,garlic,mustard,wine,lemon juice.oil,rosemary,parsley,basil,salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add the shrimp and stir to blend. Refrigerate and let stand a minimum of 2 hours.

Step 2

When ready to cook,preheat a cleaned,well-scrubbed outdoor grill to high. Brush the grill lightly with oil. Arrange an equal number of the shrimp-perhaps 7 or 8-on 4 skewers. Arrange them so that they will lie flat and touching when placed on the grill.

Step 3

Place the skewered shrimp on the grill and cook 1½ to 2 minutes,or until the shrimp can be lifted from the grill without sticking. Turn the shrimp and cook them 1½-to 2 minutes,or until done. Remove grilled shrimp from the skewers and arrange them,edges slightly overlapping,on each of 4 plates. Serve grilled shrimp with lemon wedges or,if you wish,with beurre blanc,or white sauce,spooned over.
