Shrimp, seafood is another category of the Mediterranean Diet. In Italy, shrimp is a very popular treat and is known as scampi. Here is an Italian shrimp recipe, that uses only the finest gourmet extra virgin olive oil for the shrimp.

• Two pounds raw scampi or shrimp
• Three quarter cup extra virgin olive oil
• Three quarter teaspoon sea salt
• One half teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• Two cloves garlic
• Three tablespoons of chopped parsley

Dice the garlic. Wash the shrimp, remove the entire shells, and remove the veins. Wash again and drain well, then mix the garlic, olive oil, parsley, salt and pepper together. Place the shrimp in the combination for one hour and marinate, turning them often. Remove the marinated shrimp and spear with long skewers before placing them on a baking sheet. For ten minutes broil the shrimp and baste to marinate and turn the skewers several times. Serve five or less with sliced lemon wedges for extra flavor.
