  • In a large bowl, whisk together garlic, oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss shrimp in marinade, coating well. Add more rosemary sprigs and the lemon slices. Marinate for 1 to 2 hours.

  • Start a medium-size charcoal fire; when coals are medium hot, place grid as close to them as possible. Drain shrimp and grill for about 3 minutes on each side, or until opaque. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

Use the largest shrimp you can find -- we used U-12s, which means there are fewer than 12 per pound -- so that they remain moist and juicy.
