Why Salt Roasted Peel & Eat Shrimp?

There's something magical about the simplicity of Salt Roasted Peel & Eat Shrimp. The combination of salt, heat, and fresh shrimp creates a dish that is bursting with flavor. The process of roasting the shrimp in their shells allows them to cook in their own juices, resulting in tender, succulent meat that is infused with a subtle saltiness.
