This is a delightful Japanese-inspired shrimp recipe for garlic-lovers; served over rice or pasta or on it's own -- it's sure to make everyone scream, 'What's the recipe?!' I secured this sure-fire loads-o-goodness recipe while attempting to replicate something else entirely. Serve shrimps over freshly prepared rice or pasta with a salad, vegetable and/or hot bread and butter -- Happy Ending!

  • Cut each shrimp along the back and open the halves like a book. Place a hearty dollop of the mayonnaise mixture onto each shrimp, and spread over the top to completely cover. Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over high heat until it begins to smoke. Place the shrimp in the pan, mayonnaise-side up, and add the water. Cover, and steam until the shrimp are no longer transparent, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.

I omitted the mirin as I didn't have any and used finely diced fresh onion instead of dried. With a a pinch of sesame seeds and some sliced green onions sprinkled on top this was a pretty and delicious meal. Well worth the effort. My only minor complaint is that it's kinda stunk out my kitchen. Oh well. Thanks! Read More

Very spicy and a lot thicker than the one I eat at Japanese steak houses. Not a bad recipe though especially if you like things extra spicy! Read More

Against my better judgement I made as written and wish that I would have went with my first instinct. There are a lot of potent ingredients going on here with the curry turmeric cayenne and sesame oil. They all seemed to be fighting to steal the show with curry coming in as the winner. It completely overwhelmed to the point it gave the shrimp a bitter taste. I think this recipe has potential but the spices need scaled way back and I do mean WAY back. Read More
