  3. When ready to grill, preheat thegrill to high (450 to 500 degrees F) and brush it with oil.

  4. Thread the shrimp onto metalskewers (note: if using wood skewers, be sure to pre-soak the skewers for atleast 30 minutes before grilling).

  5. Place the skewers onto the preheated grill and immediately close the lid. Cook 2 minutes, until shrimp is charred and has turned pink.
