Basil Marinated Shrimp

Peel 2 1/2 pounds shrimp.

Bring 2 gallons water to a boil with 2 cut lemons, 2 ounces crab boil and 2 ounces coarse sea salt.

Let water boil for a few minutes to incorporate flavors....add one shrimp to the water and cook.

Taste - adjust seasonings. If you like it spicy, add more crab boil, and if it is too spicy, throw away 1/2 of the water and start over.

Drop all the shrimp and cook while stirring slowly to mix the shrimp up and help them cook evenly.

Drain into a colander, spread onto a sheet pan and let cool.

Add following mixture:

1/2 cup julienne basil leaves
2 tablespoons minced garlic
3/4 cup virgin or extra virgin olive oil (do not use
very expensive extra virgin olive oil. It will
overpower the flavor of the shrimp)
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 can quartered artichoke hearts
2 cups quartered Roma tomatoes
