1. Peel shrimp, leaving tails intact. Place shrimp in a large heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag.

2. Combine onion and next 5 ingredients in a small bowl; pour over shrimp. Seal bag securely, and shake well. Marinate shrimp in refrigerator at least 40 minutes, turning bag occasionally.

3. Remove shrimp from marinade, reserving marinade. Place marinade in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes.

4. Thread shrimp evenly onto eight 12-inch skewers.

5. Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Place rack over medium-hot coals (350 to 400 degrees F). Place skewers on rack; grill, covered, 3 minutes on each side or until shrimp are done, turning and basting frequently with marinade. Garnish with basil sprigs, if desired.
