"Spaniards love to eat grilled shrimp at the counter of a good tapas bar while sipping a glass of chilled fino sherry or cold beer. Sucking the juices from the flavor-packed heads of the cooked shrimp is considered the best part."

In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt until well blended.
Dip the shrimp briefly into the mixture to coat lightly.
Heat a dry skillet over high heat. When the pan is very hot, working in batches, add the shrimp in a single layer without crowding. Sear for 1 minute.
Decrease the heat to medium and continue cooking for 1 minute longer.
Turn the shrimp, increase the heat to high, and sear for 2 more minutes, or until golden.
Keep the shrimp warm on an ovenproof platter in a low oven.
Cook the rest of the shrimp in the same way.
When all the shrimps are cooked, arrange on a platter and serve immediately.
