“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!”

Directions

  1. 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. Fold in the bread crumbs until evenly moistened. Cover, and refrigerate at least an hour.
  2. 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!

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!
