Ingredients

4 skewers
4 cloves garlic
kosher salt to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste

Directions

Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 15 minutes.
Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
Chop garlic on a cutting board. Sprinkle kosher salt over salt and with the back of a large knife, smash the garlic on the cutting board to form a paste.
Heat garlic paste and olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat until garlic begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Skewer about 5 shrimp on each wooden skewer by piercing shrimp through the tail and the upper body. Season shrimp with kosher salt and pepper. Brush one side of the shrimp with garlic-infused olive oil.
Place shrimp oil-side down on the preheated grill and brush with more olive oil; cook until shrimp begins to turn pink and curl, about 4 minutes. Turn shrimp over and brush with olive oil again. Continue grilling until shrimp is opaque and pink all over, about 4 minutes more.
