Slugs - why not salt?

I know that salt kills slugs, but what will it do to my plants? I found some slugs on my boardwalk, and murdered them all with a salt shower, but now I want to execute their compatriots. The idea of plucking the slimy creatures off my plants does not thrill me. Can't I just give them a similar seasoning?

Just throw a little pepper on them too and deep fry them in batter. Hmmmm good!! The word will get around in the slug community, and they'll be packing their slimy little bags in no time!!!:D
