For the Shrimp:

Combine all ingredients including shrimp. Marinate for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours.
When ready to cook, take shrimp out of marinade but do not throw marinade away. Saute the shrimp in a couple drizzles of hot olive oil for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn shrimp when bottom starts to turn pink. When shrimp is cooked transfer to a plate. In the same pan, cook marinade until it boils and starts to thicken.
