    Brining Solution



    1. 1
      Prepare brining solution and brine shrimp for 20-25 minutes -- remove shrimp feet and devein with shells left on (this isn't absolutely necessary but it does seem to result in moister grilled shrimp), rinse and dry.
    2. 2
      Using mortar& pestle smash garlic and salt into a smooth paste.
    3. 3
      Add cayenne and paprika and mix well.
    4. 4
      Add olive oil and lemon to form a thin paste.
    5. 5
      (NOTE: Make sure the paste isn't too loose or it will not cling to the shrimp.) Toss shrimp with paste until evenly coated.
    6. 6
      (This mixture can be covered and refrigerated for up to an hour before grilling).
    7. 7
      Grill until shells are bright pink- 2-3 minutes per side.

      These were a bit salty for my taste. I brined them with the shells on and then peeled them, then skewered them and grilled them. I liked the red color they took on and the little bit of spice from the cayanne. DH really liked them. We ate them with lemon spaghetti (Giada's Great for a summer's night!
