In a medium bowl, combine the garlic,lemon juice,red pepper, olive oil, salt, and black pepper.
Remove 1/4 cup of the mixture and transfer it to another bowl.; set the second bowl aside.
Add the shrimp to the first bowl and toss to combine. Place the shrimp on skewers-thread each skewer near the wide and narrow ends of the shrimp to keep them stable.
When the grill is hot, cook the shrimp over high heat for about 3 minutes on each side or until the shrimp are bright pink and cooked through.
Meanwhile, add the basil and tomatoes to the second bowl of marinade. As the shrimp come off the grill, slide them off the skewers into the tomato mixture and toss to combine. Serve wih grilled sourdough bread coated with olive oil.

Personal Notes:
I bought a fish basket and use that in place of the skewers...it is much easier for me to just throw them into the basket.
Also, I serve this with Rice Pilaf...always Rice Pilaf. I don't know why but I do..we made these several times this summer. I give this recipe a thumbs-up!
