If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30-60 minutes before using them on the grill, to prevent burning.
In a large bowl, whisk together the grilled shrimp marinade: olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.
Add the shrimp and gently turn to coat. Marinate shrimp for 20-30 minutes, but no longer than 1 hour.
Meanwhile, preheat the grill for about 15 minutes, or a grill pan for 5-10 minutes, over medium-high heat.
While the grill preheats, remove the shrimp from the marinade and thread onto the skewers.
When the grill has preheated, put the shrimp skewers on the grill and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until shrimp is opaque.
Serving size: 2 skewers, about 8-10 shrimp total
