If using frozen shrimp, defrost before brining.
*Saffron Salt is a limited-time offer during February. Missed out? Look out for it next year in-store and online!
Place shrimp in a bowl and cover with cold water. Add Saffron Salt and stir until salt is dissolved. Refrigerate shrimp in brine for a minimum of 1 hour and up to 24 hours. Longer brining time will deepen the golden color. Drain brining liquid and grill, saute, or bake.
To grill: Skewer shrimp, brush with vegetable oil, and grill for 3 to 4 min. per side. Serve immediately.
Cook with cherry tomatoes, onion, and/or zucchini (or thread onto skewers with shrimp before grilling) and serve over rice for a complete meal.
