Party Shrimp

1 tablespoon olive oil

1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar

1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 garlic clove, thinly sliced

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 pound uncooked shrimp (26-30 per pound), peeled and deveined


Directions

1. In a bowl or shallow dish, combine the first 8 ingredients. Add shrimp; toss to coat. Refrigerate 2 hours.

2. Drain shrimp, discarding marinade. Place shrimp on an ungreased baking sheet. Broil 4 in. from heat until shrimp turn pink, 3-4 minutes on each side.

Tip: To avoid rubbery shrimp (overcooking is a common pitfall in cooked shrimp recipes like this one), watch for signs they are done. The flesh will turn pink and firm. Act fast: They'll keep cooking for a minute or two outside the oven.
