  1. In a shallow dish, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, fresh basil leaves and garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp, and toss to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the grill or broiler to high heat. Remove the shrimp from the marinade, and thread them onto skewers. Spoon or brush any excess marinade onto the shrimp.
