It likely won't be good - I wouldn't do it, but have never tried. I have always heeded the recommendations to rinse to remove the salt.
In the beginning, I used the hatchery where you attach a fresh water vial on top and attracted to the light, the shrimp swim up and the salt falls behind. Later I hatched in gallon jars, then pulled the air hose, shined a light to attract and siphoned through a brine shrimp net, rinsed and served. If you don't have a brine shrimp net, you might use a cloth like a handkerchief, old 't'-shirt or something similar. If you wanted to be DIY fancy, you could fashion a handle from a wire coat hanger.
