Bright and fresh, shrimp marinates in a delicious green sauce made from parsley, basil, garlic, oil, and salt and pepper for one to six hours. As the shrimp grills, it releases the flavor into the shrimp. Did you know that you can press unpeeled trimmed garlic cloves through a garlic press? The force of the press pushes the garlic out of its skin and through the holes of the press. Serve this shrimp with asparagus or mixed salad greens.
