Kids Will Eat it All! Mayonnaise Shrimp for Bento or Dinner

Kids Will Eat it All! Mayonnaise Shrimp for Bento or Dinner

A recipe that kids will love, that isn't fried. Great for bento lunch boxes. The hidden flavor, oyster sauce, gives a kick. And vinegar for a light taste.

Ingredients: serves 3

White leg shrimp
about 300 g
about 2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
* Mayonnaise
3 tablespoons
* Oyster sauce
1 teaspoon
1 scant teaspoon
* Sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons
* Soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon
* Sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon


1. I use white leg shrimp. They were on special offer today - 98 yen per 100 g. Remove the skin, pour sake over, rub it in and let sit for 10 minutes.
2. Wash and then remove the moisture with paper towels. Prepare a bag with flour. Add the shrimp and cover with flour.
3. Pat off excess flour. Add plenty of vegetable oil (not listed) to a frying pan and cook both sides of the shrimp on low heat.
4. While the shrimp is cooking, put the * ingredients into a large bowl (you'll be adding the shrimp later) and mix together.
5. Once the shrimp has finished cooking, add to the bowl and mix.
6. I made another version using salmon.

Story Behind this Recipe

Kids love mayonnaise shrimp. The recipe I used from a book was a bit heavy, so I added vinegar for a lighter version.
