Marinated Grill Shrimp

From allrecipes
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup tomato sauce
2 T red wine vinegar
2 T chopped fresh basil
1/2 t salt
1/4 t cayenne pepper
2 pound fresh 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 marinade.
3.  Lightly oil grill grate. Cook shrimp on preheated grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque.

We had fun with this, very tasty on their own or mixed with a salad--my husband thought they would be perfect in Alfredo sauce.
