 This is perfect for your Oscar party. or anytime.

I used raw deveined shrimp but you can also use precooked shrimp too.

1 lb. shrimp 
1 lemon: juice and zest
1/4 tsp. each: salt, pepper
1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 - 2 T. olive oil

1 clove garlic crushed, chopped 
3/4 c. prepared cocktail sauce

Peel, crush and chop garlic.

Zest lemon, cut lemon in half, set aside.

Combine ingredients in a bowl. 

Squeeze lemon juice over shrimp.

Toss to coat shrimp. Marinate for 15- 30 minutes in refrigerator.

Heat grill pan to medium high heat. 

Lower heat to medium, add shrimp. 

Grill shrimp on one side for 3 - 4 min or until shrimp turns pink. 

Turn shrimp over on other side for 3 - 4 min more or until it turns pink. 

If using precooked shrimp, grill shrimp on each side for 2 - 3 min. or until heated.

Thread shrimp on toothpicks.
