I keep hearing about the 'salt roasting' method and it's finally time to test it out on a few jumbo shrimp. It seems easy enough and kind of kicky. I have an olive oil/garlic/saffron dipping sauce in my head. Details below. Have you ever tried salt roasting? Any tips, or tricks of the trade you would like to pass along? Salt Roasted Shrimp Heat 4 cups of Kosher salt in baking pan at 500 degrees for 30 minutes. Add shrimp (I will use peeled and deveined) and roast for 3 minutes. Flip shrimp if necessary and roast for 3 more minutes. Dust off shrimp with pastry/kitchen brush, and serve with dipping sauce. Dipping Sauce: 1 cup olive oil 1 clove diced garlic a few threads of high quality saffron pinch of crushed red pepper pinch of salt
