15 cherry tomatoes
8 large garlic cloves (sliced into thirds, use only the middle piece)
1 tablespoon fresh oregano

1 1/2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper
bamboo skewer

In a large glass bowl, combine ALL ingredients except the tomatoes. Cover and marinate for about at least 3 hours.

Soak the bamboo skewers in warm water 30 minutes prior to placing the shrimp on them. Heat gas or charcoal grill to high heat.

Place one shrimp on the skewer sideways so they will not slip, then a slice of garlic, then a cherry tomato, repeat with shrimp, garlic and then a tomato. Repeat until all ingredients are used.

Brush the tomatoes with olive oil. Season all with salt and pepper. Place skewers on grill over direct heat. Cook 3-5 minutes per side until shrimp is cooked through.
