I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Kewpie Shrimp
...in your mind.

Kewpie Shrimp


  • 30 raw shelled Shrimp (size: 2-1/25)

  • 1-2 tablespoons EVOO
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh black pepper

  4. Grill 2 minutes maximum, each side, remove from grill
  5. Brush on Kewpie mayo to one side, sprinkle with Togarashi
  6. Place back on flaming hot grill for 15 seconds, until a little blacked, or if you have one use a gas torch, that’s what I use.
