Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Shrimp sounds so good today!  When I was a young girl I remember eating shrimp for the first time...I didn't think that crunchy tail was all that great...after I finished my meal everyone wondered where I put the tails...Aaaww the memories, now I know better!!!

3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup tomato sauce
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined

1. In a large bowl, stir together the garlic, olive oil, tomato sauce, and red wine vinegar.  Season with basil, salt, and cayenne pepper.  Add shrimp to the bowl, and stir until evenly coated.  Cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour, stirring once or twice.
2. Preheat grill for medium heat.  Thread shrimp onto skewers, piercing once near the tail and once near the head.  Discard the marinade.
3. Lightly oil grill grate.  Cook shrimp on preheated grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque.
