1 pound peeled and deveined large shrimp (about 20 shrimp)

Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 lemon, halved


Special equipment:
Four 12-inch skewers
  1. Prepare a grill for very high heat. 
  2. Curl each shrimp into a C shape, and skewer through the neck and tail; you should be able to fit 5 on each skewer. Brush the shrimp with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  3. Place the lemon halves on the grill cut-sides down. Lay the skewers flat on the grill and grill, covered, for 90 seconds. Flip the skewers and grill, covered, until grill marks appear on the shrimp, about 1 minute. Transfer the skewers to a plate, squeeze the grilled lemon halves over the top and serve.
