Grilled Pesto Shrimp Skewers
In a food processor pulse 1 cup fresh basil leaves chopped, 1 clove garlic, 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano, salt and pepper until smooth. Slowly add 3 tbsp olive oil while pulsing. Combine 1 1/2 lbs raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined with marinate a few hours in a bowl. Soak wooden skewers in water at least 20 minutes (or use metal ones to avoid this step). Thread shrimp onto 7 skewers. Heat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan over medium-low heat until hot. Be sure the grates are clean and spray lightly with oil. Place the shrimp on the hot grill and cook until shrimp turns pink on the bottom, about 3-4 minutes; turn and continue cooking until shrimp is opaque and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes.
