*When calculating the nutrition information, I included the marinade stats using the amount left after marinade, which for me, ended up being about a 1/4 of the recipe per serving.  The shrimp absorbed very little of the marinade.  

3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup ketchup
2 TBS red wine vinegar
1 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne (or more to taste)
1 pounds of raw fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined (the bigger shrimp you can get the better)
 6 skewers

1.  Combine the garlic, olive oil, ketchup, red wine vinegar, dried basil, black pepper, salt and cayenne in a small bowl.  Put shrimp in a gallon sized zipper bag and pour the marinade over it.  
2.  Put the zipper bag in a clean container and pop into the fridge for 1-2 hours.  If using wooden skewers, soak in water while shrimp is marinading.
3.  Heat grill to med/high.  Grill shrimp skewers until shrimp is opaque and cooked through.  You can baste skewers with the marinade while cooking if you like.
