When I left Thailand for America, I missed the grilled seafood, especially the grilled shrimp. It is now tougher with my new life with a lot of new challenges including that I have less time for cooking. Fortunately, I discovered Himalayan Salt planks for cooking. At first I only used the planks of cooking beef which was wonderful. Then, I thought why not use the planks for shrimp. Grilled shrimp in salt is very popular in Asia. I tried it and the results really surprised me. The shrimp were so tender, flavorful and prepared very quickly. I was very happy. Now you can also have your favorite grilled shrimp at home in 15 minutes.
