    Excellent rib-setup there and you got me on the grilled aspara-goose! My favorite, here. One question, though.... how did the shrimpers take to the brine? Did they actually "keep" any of the flavor?
  6. I usually brine the shrimp in just sugar and salt. Added the cajan seasoning this time. The shrimp were plumper than before the brine so I'm sure that they took in some of the flavor. I only had time to brine them for about an hour. It might have helped to let them brine longer.

    Looking good blues man. Thats another one for the todo list.
  10. I always brine my shrimp in at least a salt brine. It plumps the shrimp up and helps keep them from drying out. Anyone else brine shrimp?

    Tiger shrimp are imported from the Far East. If they where purchased frozen they have probably been treated to preserve freshness and moisture. If I remember correctly you will see "water added" on the label. In that case they are probably as plump as you can get them.

    We do Gulf of Mexico shrimp all the time and we use Italian dressing, soy sauce, and spices as a marinade. We then warm some crushed garlic in melted butter and use to baste.

    Never the less what you did looks great and delicious so I'm not offering any advicce just an observation.

    Thanks for the Qview.
