Salt-Roasted Shrimp with Lemon-Honey Dipping Sauce

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Cindy Barr
Yield 8 appetizer servings (serving size: 3 shrimp and 1 tablespoon sauce)
Roasting shrimp atop a bed of hot rock salt cooks the shrimp evenly and helps hold in moisture. Because the shrimp are cooked unpeeled, the salt does not permeate, and the results are tender and juicy.

Ingredients

  • 1 (4-pound) box rock salt
  • 24 unpeeled jumbo shrimp (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • 2 tablespoons minced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
