An elegant shrimp recipe that is complex in flavor and simple in process.


  • 1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Cold water, to cover shrimp
  • 1 Tbsp. Saffron Salt*
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil (for grilling)


If using frozen shrimp, defrost before brining.

*Saffron Salt is a Limited-Time Offer for February 2018. Need to pick some up? Order online or visit your local store!


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.

Serving Suggestions

Cook with cherry tomatoes, onion, and/or zucchini (or thread onto skewers with shrimp before grilling) and serve over rice for a complete meal.
