  1. Whisk together the canola oil, hot pepper sauce, garlic, chili sauce, lemon juice, and oregano in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add the shrimp and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator 1 hour.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove the shrimp from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Thread about 4 shrimp onto each skewer.
  4. Cook on the preheated grill until pink on the outside and no longer translucent in the center, about 3 minutes per side.

Wow! This definitely is some of the "Best BBQ Shrimp Ever"! I did cut way back on the oil though...only using a little over 1/4 cup. I used olive oil vs. canola and 1/4 tsp. of tabasco. I also...

Yum! My kids and I loved this recipe. I changed it a bit. I used regular chili sauce, marinated about 1 hour then cook in a pan on the stove.

Really good - we like these in some tortillas or lettuce wraps with some rice. I didn't have chili sauce, but I did have a hot-sauce flavoured ketchup - so I used that with about a tbsp of Sirac...

These were excellent shrimp. My wife, who doesn't really like shrimp ate all of hers!!

This is a great marinade. I pan fried the shrimp on medium high for about 3 minutes/side (its about -10 outside so I didn't feel like grilling). The shrimp were great. The marinade gave them ...
