Quick! Get this shrimp on the barbie!

Spicy Grilled Shrimp (click here for the recipe on the Bon Appetit website)  has become an extended family favourite, and we make it several times each summer.
   It's no-fail, and great for a weeknight or even a backyard party.
   Did I mention it's super easy, too?
   One important point: If you can't get fresh basil, don't bother making this. It's that key to the final product!
   This recipe is a simple matter: Mix olive oil, basil, crushed garlic cloves, white wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper in a bowl to make the marinade.
   Thread shrimp onto skewers, put in a baking dish, cover with marinade and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
   Grill the shrimp, serve, and watch 'em be gobbled up.
