  • Arrange the shrimp in a single layer in a deep metal baking pan. Pour the hot salt over the shrimp, covering them completely. Roast the shrimp for 5 minutes, until just cooked through. Rinse the shrimp briefly under hot water and pat dry. Serve immediately with olive oil for dipping.

Suggested Pairing

The floral, medium-bodied Orvietos of Umbria, made primarily from Grechetto and Trebbiano grapes, are great partners for shellfish.
