  Butter/Margarine 1⁄4 Pound
  Olive oil 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), minced or pressed

Grill until shrimp turn bright pink (about 3 minutes), basting at least once with butter mixture.
Turn shrimp, baste again, and continue to grill until opaque in center when cut (2 to 3 more minutes).
Arrange shrimp on a serving platter.
Heat remaining baste with lemon juice; pour into small containers.
Offer for dipping.
