Notes: From Orange County Registar Advance preparation: Shrimp can be grilled the day before serving and stored, airtight, in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature just before serving. Vinaigrette can be prepared 3 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator in a sealed jar.
Preliminaries: Soak skewers in water for at least 1 hour. This will help to prevent them from burning.
1. Place shrimp in a nonreactive bowl, such as glass or stainless steel.
Drizzle with olive oil and top with fresh mint. Gently toss, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
2. Preheat grill or broiler. Thread shrimp on skewers, about 5 on each skewer. Grill or broil shrimp, about 2 minutes per side, or until pink and fully cooked. Place on platter. 3. Prepare vinaigrette. In a small bowl, combine ½ cup olive oil, vinegars and garlic salt to taste. Using a fork, push shrimp off skewers and place in center of platter. Drizzle vinaigrette on top of shrimp and sprinkle with feta. Surround with sliced bread. Garnish with sprigs of fresh mint.
