  Medium shrimp 2 Pound
  Chile powder 1 Teaspoon
  Vinegar 1 Tablespoon
  Pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced or mashed
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Basil 1 Teaspoon
  Finely fresh mint/1 teaspoon dried mint 1 Tablespoon
  Salad oil 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)

Wash, shell, and devein the shrimp (or use about 1 1/2 pounds frozen deveined large shrimp€”they need not be thawed).
In a bowl or glass jar, blend the chile powder with the vinegar, pepper, garlic, salt, basil, and mint.
Stir in the oil and shake or mix until well blended.
Pour over the shrimp, cover the dish, and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours, or overnight.
Thread the shrimp on skewers and grill over charcoal for 6 to 10 minutes (depending on size), turning once and basting liberally with the marinade. (Or arrange unskewered shrimp on a broiler rack and broil in the oven, turning once and basting well.)
