  • In a small bowl, crush the garlic with the salt. Mix in cayenne pepper and paprika, and then stir in olive oil and lemon juice to form a paste. In a large bowl, toss shrimp with garlic paste until evenly coated.

  • Lightly oil grill grate. Cook shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with lemon wedges, and serve.

Editor's Note:

If you don't have coarse kosher salt, use 1 teaspoon table salt instead.

Tip

Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
