Shrimp in shell (to give your dish a little more pizzaz use head-on shrimp if you can get them)
A pepper grinder
Spread out a solid 1/2-inch bed of solar salt on a sheet of iron or an actual griddle, and start heating it over a hot fire. A bed of solar salt diffuses the heat of the iron without overseasoning the shrimp.
Meanwhile, toss the shrimp with copious freshly ground black pepper.
When the salt is very hot, quickly lay the shrimp down on it. Turn each shrimp as soon as translucency appears to have crept through more than half of it, using the tail as a handle (or tongs if you prefer). The second the flipped shrimp attains curliness, remove to a serving platter.
Allow 4–6 shrimp per person for an appetizer, depending on size of shrimp and appetites.
