Grilled Shrimp

Recipe Submitted by Shelley.

"Always watch shrimp carefully while cooking, so it doesn't overcook. They should be opaque, but not dry."

3 pounds jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
Cracked black pepper to taste
1-1/2 teaspoons basil
3 - 4 bay leaves
1 teaspoon oregano
1-1/2 teaspoons rosemary
1 stick butter or margarine, melted
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Liquid Smoke
Juice of 3 lemons
1 teaspoon paprika
3 - 4 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

While the charcoal is burning down to glowing coals, prepare shrimp, rinse, and pat dry. Whisk together remaining ingredients and add shrimp. Marinate until ready to cook; about one hour is best. These can be threaded on skewers, or left in marinade in grill-proof pan. On skewers, grill, turning often, for about 1 - 2 minutes per side, basting with marinade during cooking. In a pan, cook and stir on grill for approximately 30 minutes. They can also be baked in a pan in the oven at 350 for approximately 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
