Ingredients

  • 24 jumbo tiger-shrimp or langoustines
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Two generous handfuls fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup/60 ml olive oil

Directions

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.
