Bobby Flay's method involves brushing 1 pound of extra large peeled and de-veined shrimp with a seasoned olive oil, threading them on pre-soaked skewers and grilling on each side for 60 to 90 seconds. Make the oil by lightly sautéing 3 crushed cloves of garlic and 1 tablespoon of chili flakes in a small skillet for about 10 minutes. Add to a blender after letting cool slightly and blend with 1 tablespoon of fresh oregano and some salt and pepper. Set half aside for serving and use the rest to brush the shrimp after threading them on skewers soaked in water for 30 minutes. Season with more salt and pepper and grill on each side for 60 to 90 seconds.
