Dynamite Shrimp, crispy shrimp coated with rich creamy Sriracha mayo just like your favorite Japanese restaurant. Super delicious but very easy to make at home
I love Japanese food and I usually dine out once a week at Japanese izakaya or regular Japanese restaurants. One of the things I love about eating out in Japanese restaurants is the Appetizer menu. There are endless array of delectable dishes to choose from: agedashi tofu, chicken karaage, chawanmushi, gyoza, seafood dynamite, fried oysters with panko, and so much more. And all of them are so yummy and I could just order appetizers and be very happy.
Dynamite Shrimp is a perfect appetizer to serve to guests or whenever you want to pamper yourself for a quick afternoon treat. I love this and never tire of eating it. I hope you like this recipe and get to make it soon!
Dynamite Shrimp Recipe
Serves 1 | Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Cook Time: 5 Minutes
6 oz shelled and deveined medium-sized shrimp
Oil, for deep-frying
3 tablespoons mayonnaise (Kewpie brand preferred)
1 teaspoon honey
Scant 1/4 teaspoon Sriracha or to taste
A squirt lemon juice
Clean and rinse the shrimp with cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels and set aside.
Prepare the Batter by mixing all the ingredients together. Prepare the Dressing by combining all the ingredients together.
Add the shrimp into the batter and coat evenly. Heat up a deep-fryer or a pot with oil for deep-frying. When the oil is heated, drop each shrimp gently into the oil and deep fry until they turn golden brown. Transfer them out with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl lined with paper towels.
Remove the paper towels and add the Dressing into the bowl and toss it around until all the shrimp are nicely coated with the dressing. Serve immediately.
