  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Several dashes hot sauce, to taste
  • 1 pound raw shrimp (21 to 25 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme
  • Tip: To oil a grill rack: Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill).

directions

Mix the tomatoes, bell pepper, cucumber, celery, onion, chives, vinegar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, salt and hot sauce in a large bowl. Cover and chill for at least 20 minutes or up to 1 day.

Mix the shrimp, garlic and thyme in a medium bowl; cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Coat a grill pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat or preheat the grill to medium-high and oil the grill rack (see Tip). Cook the shrimp until pink and firm, about 2 minutes per side. Serve the shrimp with the salsa in martini glasses or bowls.
