Cut the shrimp in half lengthwise. Mince
the garlic. Shred
the basil leaves. Toss together with the shrimp
halves and the olive oil
in a glass bowl. Cover and let sit in the fridge for about 1 hour. Remove 30 minutes before cooking.
Heat the oven to broil. Spread the shrimp over a baking sheet, dribbling over any basil
oil that stays behind in the bowl. Broil
5 minutes until the flesh is cooked. Serve immediately.
