Ingredients

  • 10 cups water
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 24 jumbo shrimp (2 1/2 pounds)
  • Spicy Citrus Dipping Sauce, for serving

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, combine the water, salt and sugar, stirring to dissolve the salt. Using a paring knife or scissors, slit each shrimp down the back through the shell; remove the dark veins. Add the shrimp to the brine, cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  2. Light a grill. Drain the shrimp and pat dry. Grill the shrimp over moderately high heat, turning once, until the shells are lightly charred and the shrimp are just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Serve with the Spicy Citrus Dipping Sauce.
