BBQ Shrimp

1/2 lb shrimp, shell and head on, de-veined
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon, cut in half
Wash shrimp leaving it's shell, tail and head on. Proceed to de-vein by cutting through it's back, just enough to remove the 1-2 inch vein. Place the shrimp in a medium sized bowl.

Sprinkle the salt and pepper and drizzle olive oil over it. Use a silicon brush to spread everything through. Place the shrimp on the BBQ and cook for 6-7 min, flipping them half way. While the shrimp is cooking, place the lemon on the BBQ for 5 min to heat up.

Be sure not to overcook the shrimp. They are cooked when they start to curl up and the meat turns from white/grey to pink. Remove from heat and serve with the lemon on the side, squeezing the lemon over the shrimp just before eating.
