Salt-Crusted Shrimp with Greek Islands Dipping Sauce

Makes: 4 servings
Grill 3 mins to 4 mins  per side
Salt-Crusted Shrimp with Greek Islands Dipping Sauce
  • 16  jumbo or colossal shrimp in the shell
  • 3  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1/4  cup  kosher salt or other coarse salt
  • 1  recipe Greek Islands Dipping Sauce (see recipe below)

1. Prepare Greek Island Dipping Sauce; cover and chill until ready to use. Build a charcoal fire or preheat a gas grill. Put the shrimp in a large bowl and toss with the oil to coat lightly all over. Just before putting on the grill, sprinkle the salt evenly over the shrimp and toss well to make sure each shrimp is thoroughly coated in a crust of salt. Do not use fine-grain kosher salt, as it melts too quickly.

2. Place the shrimp in the center of the cooking grate, and grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until the shrimp is pink and the flesh is opaque. Serve immediately with the dipping sauce.
