Grilled Jumbo Shrimp

2 1/2 pounds jumbo shrimp, uncooked with tail
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup diced green onion
3 tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. dried basil
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
Bacon slices, cut in half one per shrimp

Precook bacon slices, but not to a crispy doneness. They will finish when grilled.

Peel (unless already peeled) shrimp and put into zip lock bag. Mix remaining ingredients together and pour mixture over shrimp. Seal bag and allow to marinate 2-4 hours. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Wrap bacon around shrimp and put on skewer. Place on grill and allow to cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and skewer, and serve.
