Garlic-Lime Shrimp Cooked on a Himalayan Salt Plate

I recently had a birthday and my sister Dana gave me a beautiful Himalayan Salt Plate that I couldn’t wait to use. After being in Colorado and eating a lot of rich and delicious restaurant food, I was ready to get back into the kitchen. I cooked all day long and it was really REALLY nice. I initially was going to heat the salt plate in the oven but thankfully I read the instructions and realized that the oven isn’t an option. You must use a grill, gas stove, or refrigerator because the oven, induction cooktops, and electric stove tops do not work with these Himalayan salt plates. I heated it up slowly on my gas stove for about 45 minutes. I marinated the shrimp in a little bit of vegetable oil, smashed garlic, lime zest, and black pepper. It’s very important that you don’t season the shrimp with any salt! The Himalayan salt plate seasons the shrimp for you and it’s wonderful. I cooked our shrimp in two batches and I did notice that the second batch was a littler saltier than the first batch but thankfully still seasoned nicely. The reason being, the cooler the plate becomes, the saltier the food. Make sure to cook it quickly so the shrimp doesn’t get too salty. Not only did the shrimp turn out delicious and perfectly cooked but the whole process was fun. My kids loved it and so did my husband and I. Thank you for my Himalayan salt plate Dana!
