Salt Block Shrimp = BEST shrimp EVER!
First, you need a Himalayan Salt Block, a gas cooktop or gas grill, and an infrared thermometer.
Second, slowly raise the temperature of your salt block. We were working indoors on our gas cooktop, and we spent about 35 minutes raising the temperature to 500*F.
Raw, deveined and peeled shrimp
3 Tbsp of lime juice
2 Tbsp of olive oil
1 Tbsp of dry Sriracha
We cooked them about 3 minutes, then flipped them, and cooked 2 more minutes!
They are AMAZING!! Seriously. AMAZING.
They are seasoned perfectly!
Try it!! You’ll wonder why you waited so long to buy a Salt Block of your own!
I’ve had a few questions via Facebook, so to answer, especially for my Little Rock, AR, friends:
*I bought my block via Amazon, but they’re also available locally at Dandelion Tea on Clinton Ave and at Eggshells Kitchen Co in the Heights!
*I bought the infrared thermometer for around $10 at Home Depot, near welding supplies. Knowing the temp is pretty essential. If your block isn’t hot enough, your food may become too salty, I read.
*If you’re on Pinterest, find me (@amberhh) I have a whole board dedicated to just the Himalayan Salt Block!
