Ingredients

24 large shrimp, cleaned and deveined

1/2 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 cup fish broth

1/2 cup finely chopped tomatoes

2 eggs

1/3 cup lemon juice

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

6 wooden skewers, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes

  1. Marinate the shrimp in the olive oil, oregano, and garlic 30 minutes
  2. Preheat a grill. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F.
