Chile-roasted Shrimp

Donald Link, Herbsaint. Shuttling back and forth between jobs in New Orleans and San Francisco has added a refined style to Donald's Cajun/Creole background, as in this spicy and delicious but not exactly Cajun recipe. For easy peeling, use shell-on deveined shrimp, whose shells come pre-cut up the back.
