How to make Shrimps Baked with Salt

Today I will show you How to make Shrimps Baked with Salt. As you have noticed so far, shrimps are one of my favorite seafood. Believe it or not, the cooking technology we are going to use today originated from Mongolians, who used to store their food on salt and bake them as they were, because the salt keeps the moisture in. Shrimps are the perfect choice for this type of baking because their shell does not allow the salt to penetrate.

The only thing needed to prepare the shrimps is to wash them really really good. It is important not to take the skin or the head off, otherwise you are going to end up with hot pickled shrimps. If you can find fresh shrimps, this dish will taste incredibly good.

How to make Shrimps Baked with Salt

To prepare the dish, we need a baking pan. In the baking pan, pour 1/4th of salt and start arranging the shrimps as we did with ladyfingers in the Tiramisu Recipe.  After all the shrimps are perfectly arranged, add the other remaining salt to the baking pan. Be careful not to rearrange the shrimps when adjusting the salt.  It is important for the salt to be rock salt. If rock salt is not available, use normal salt but mix it with eggs first. For every 200 gr of salt, use 1 egg.

Preheat the oven at 220C(430F). Cook the shrimps for approximately 18 minutes. For presentation purposes, you can put cooking alcohol on top of the shrimps, after they are baked. Light up the fire and get ready to take the most amazing food video you have ever taken.
