  1. Japanese Garlic Dollop Shrimp

To create Japanese Garlic Dollop shrimp, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin

  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 16 peeled and deveined jumbo shrimp, tails still attached
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup water

First, stir together the mayonnaise, soy sauce, mirin, minced garlic, dried minced onion, onion powder, curry powder, turmeric, basil, cayenne pepper, and salt in a bowl. Then fold in the bread crumbs until they are evenly moist. Cover the dish and then refrigerate it for at least an hour or more. Then cut each shrimp along the back and open the halves. Place a significant amount of the mayonnaise mixture onto each shrimp, and completely cover. Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over high heat until it begins to cause smoke. Place the shrimp in the pan, mayonnaise-side up, then you can add the water. Cover the dish and steam the shrimp until they are no longer transparent, which should take 2 and a 1/2 to 3 minutes. The meal is now ready to enjoy!
