Makes 8 to 10 servings

Notes: Use yellow or pink grapefruit juice, fresh-squeezed or bottled. To crush juniper berries, smash with the flat bottom of a glass or pan.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a bowl, combine grapefruit juice, orange juice, garlic, oil, and juniper berries.

Step 2

Pull most of the leaves from each rosemary stem, leaving about 2 inches at the tip of the sprig. Mince enough leaves to make 1 teaspoon; add to bowl. Reserve extra leaves for other uses.

Step 3

Add shrimp to bowl and mix. Let stand at least 15 minutes, or cover and chill up to 2 hours.

Step 4

Meanwhile, put rosemary stems in a bowl and cover with water.

Step 5

Drain shrimp; discard marinade. Form 1 shrimp into a C and push thick end of a rosemary sprig through fat section, then through tail end of the shellfish. Continue skewering shrimp with remaining rosemary, distributing shrimp equally among sprigs.

Step 6

Lay skewered shrimp on a barbecue grill over very hot coals or very high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 1 to 2 seconds); close lid on gas grill. Turn shrimp as needed to cook evenly until they are opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), about 4 minutes.
