DIRECTIONS

  • Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 20 minutes.
  • Heat the grill to medium.
  • Whisk together 1/4 cup of the oil, 2 tablespoons of the thyme, ancho chili powder and chopped garlic in a small bowl. Skewer the shrimp and brush with marinade.
  • Place the remaining 1/2 cup of the oil in a small saucepan, add the sliced garlic and cook until the sliced garlic is lightly golden brown. Remove the garlic slices with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels. Reserve the oil.
  • Increase the heat of the grill to high.
  • Remove the shrimp from the marinade, season with salt and pepper and grill until golden brown on each side, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Remove the shrimp from the skewers, transfer to a platter and drizzle with some of the reserved garlic oil and the garlic chips. Sprinkle with the remaining thyme and garnish with oregano leaves.
