      Directions

      Marinate the shrimp in the olive oil, oregano, and garlic 30 minutes

      Preheat a grill. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F.

      Slide 4 shrimp onto each skewer. Place on a hot grill and mark on both sides quickly, not cooking them through. Put them in a baking dish and pour the fish broth over the shrimp with the tomatoes and place in the oven for about 4 minutes.

      Remove from the oven, take the shrimp out of the baking dish, and place on a platter.

      In a bowl whisk together the eggs and lemon juice. Slowly pour in the fish broth with the tomatoes and incorporate it until foamy. Season with salt and pepper. Pour it over the shrimp and sprinkle with parsley. Serve warm, as an appetizer.

        I saw this recipe and had to make it immediately just becuase of the ingredients I saw.

        Excellent. I added 1 pound of well cooked thin spagetti, and an extra egg, with a touch more lemon juice, lots of garlic (fresh picked garlic mild, a good bit of Italin Parsley, tempered the sauces like recipe says to do and it was simply outragous taste. BEST ever receip really....!~! At the end of the cooking process the sauce thickened around the pasta and shrimp once all was combined and disappeared all over the pasta. GREAT.........a creamy flavored lemony sauce to go with the shrimp. Oh right I also may have added a bit more shrimp than is called for to. This recipe goes into my all time favorites.......THANKS FOR THIS LOVELY RECIPE!!
