    Hey Jude's Note:

    Rubbing with salt and sugar before grilling results in really succulent shrimp. This is a Sunset recipe.

      I believe that this recipe must work, but I must have not rinsed the shrimp well enough. They were very very salty. Just a warning to the next person to try it. Rinse well.

      I know this may sound a little unusual at first, but the results are amazing and it's very easy. You can also put the shrimp under the broiler if you'd rather not BBQ. I sometimes add some fresh herbs (dill, thyme, whatever you have) with the olive oil.
