And a good time was had by all...

Alright friends... The Japanese Shrimp recipe by popular demand.

I buy my shrimp at Costco 21-25 per pound frozen, cleaned uncooked and tail on.

Prepare a large pot of boiling water and add a couple of tsp of salt, 2 bay leaves and a tsp of "old bay seasoning". Add shrimp and as soon as they are opaque drain and put them into an ice bath (it only takes a minute or two so don't multi-task when you cook them)! You can do this in the morning and refrigerate until you're ready to sauce them.


  • 2 tbsp light soya sauce

  • 2 tbsp lime juice

  • juice from 1 tangerine (or small orange)

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp of Asian chili sauce (oops I forgot that ingredient this time around)!

  • 1 tbsp minced ginger

  • 2 cloves minced garlic

  • 1 small bunch of basil

Combine all the ingredients except the basil and refrigerate until ready to eat. Chop and add the basil just before serving... Your guests will love it... mine did!
