In a medium nonreactive (non-metallic) bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, sumac, salt and pepper.
Add the shrimp and coat each one well with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Heat the grill to medium high.
Thread the shrimp on skewers, about 5 per skewer. Discard remaining marinade.
Coat the grill grates with a bit of oil, using tongs and a folded paper towel. Lay the shrimp skewers on the coated grates and cook for 2-3 minutes. Turn and grill the other side of the shrimp skewers for 2-3 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque and light pink.
Remove the skewers from the grill and brush the hot shrimp generously with olive oil. Dust them with more sumac, then push the shrimp off of the skewers to serve.
