Cedar-Planked Shrimp with Chipotle-Pumpkin Seed Salsa

This shrimp recipe from Bon Appetit magazine was not a hit at our house. Even though I soaked the cedar planks all day under the rack in my kitchen sink, they were burning up pretty quickly and this made the Hub nervous. He was supposed to let the planks cook on one side for 10 minutes and then turn them over and add the shrimp. He didn't take the directions out in the backyard with him, so I suspect he may have been winging it. I'm not sure the slight smokey flavor added that much to the shrimp. Also the unevenness of the cooking made Andrew nervous, causing him to microwave the shrimp too, just to be on the safe side.  I had made the salsa earlier in the day and no one but me liked that either. Oh well, you can't win them all.
