Step 1

In a blender or food processor, combine everything except shrimp. Process until smooth.

In a large bowl, combine puree with the shrimp and marinate at least four hours (or cover and refrigerate overnight).

Bring to room temperature before grilling.

To grill, thread the shrimp on skewers, fitting them close together. Smear any remaining marinade over the shrimp. Cover the grill and cook, turning once, until they are just done - 4 to 5 minutes.
