John's Favorite Grilled Shrimp

My husband loves this simple shrimp recipe.  I marinate shrimp with lots of garlic, olive oil & Old Bay then grill them.  They are so tasty, no cocktail sauce is needed!  I made this for part of John's birthday dinner this week.  Along with a big Porterhouse Steak, my Twice Baked & Over Stuffed Potatoes & a green salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing.  He was a happy (and very full) birthday boy!
1 lb Large Shrimp, heads removed, shells on
4-5 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 tsp Old Bay (plus additional for serving)
Fresh chopped Parsley, to garnish

Use large shrimp, since these will be grilled and the fresher the better!
 These were 21-30 count. 
 Mince up the garlic.  Add the shrimp to a large Ziploc type bag.  Add the garlic, olive oil & Old Bay to the bag.  Close the top of the bag & distribute the garlic & oil evenly over the shrimp. 
 Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, I marinated them for 4 hours this time.
Grill the shrimp over medium- high heat.  They will cook quickly, so don't leave them unattended!  As soon as they turn pink & start to curl remove them from the grill. 
 Plate & sprinkle with chopped Parsley to garnish.  Serve with Old Bay & a bowl for the shells.
This recipe is for 2 main course servings or 4 appetizers.
