Combine all marinade ingredients in a small bowl.
Place shrimp in a large, heavy-duty resealable plastic bag.
Pour marinade over shrimp and seal bag.
Turn bag several times to coat shrimp with marinade.
Marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Preheat grill to high setting.
Thread shrimp onto skewers (5-6 per skewer, depending on size of shrimp).
Brush grill rack lightly with oil.
Grill shrimp for about 2 minutes per side, just until shrimp turns pink and no gray remains.
Be careful not to over cook shrimp or they will be rubbery.
Just stand there and stare at them the entire time they are cooking, OK?
