You will love these grilled shrimp skewers because you can get away with affordable medium size shrimp, marinating time equals 0 minutes and they can be on your table in 16 minutes. Thread, brush, flip-flop and voila. Yes, exactly like that.

I personally see no need to marinate shrimp as a touch of olive oil, garlic and herbs can give this delicate meat a lot of flavour.
