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


1/4 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg white
50 ml water
1 tablespoon oil
Pinch of salt


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.

    I’ve never seen this on Japanese menus here but they do look very similar to those hot and cold Chinese appetizers dishes that usually contain some fried prawns with sweet mayo dripping.One of my favourites!

    May I ask what is Sriracha? Is it spicy? Is there any substitute if its not available? Thanks!

  7. Shirley says:

    Thank you for sharing this recipes! We love it!

    As I put the shrimps in the oil, the batter came off from the shrimp. May I know why it happen?

  8. Fern says:

    Love the name of this dish, and it looks delicious too. Look forward to trying it this weekend!

  9. Chris says:

    These look like they turned out really well, sometimes if you order something like it at a restaurant there is too much batter. Anything with shrimp in it does it for me… fried or not!

    Is this very similar to the Chinese dish Honey Walnut Shrimp? The sauce is slightly different but same concept.
