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 one of my favorite Japanese appetizer dishes. It’s basically shrimp battered and deep fried to golden perfection and tossed with a honey-mayonnaise light dressing. Sounds really simple but they are oh-so-addictive. In my opinion, the best Dynamite Shrimp is made with rock shrimp, as rock shrimp has a nice crisp texture and perfect for this recipe.

Anyway, rock shrimp is hard to come by unless you go to some expensive seafood specialty stores. Regular shrimp works well. For the mayonnaise, a little heat goes a long way and hence I used some Sriracha hot sauce for some extra zing. When I make Japanese dishes, I also make sure that I use Kewpie brand Japanese mayonnaise, which comes in a soft plastic tube with the iconic baby as the label.

Dynamite Shrimp

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!

    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!

  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?

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

    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.
