This time I used 30 black tiger shrimp shells, but any kind is ok .
Microwave until the water has evaporated and the shells have turned pink. Using my household microwave, it took 3 minutes initially, and then an additional 3 minutes after flipping them over at 500W.
Finely grate in a food processor, mix in the salt and sesame, and it is done.
User "Izumi Una" made this with nori seaweed and sesame seeds.
User "Kuishinbo" used sakura shrimp and put it into lotus root burgers.
When you only used a small amount of shrimp, store the shells in a bag in the freezer. Use them up in this recipe once you have accumulated some shells!
Story Behind this Recipe
Throwing out shrimp shells makes the trash smell fishy, and I didn't want to deal with that, especially in the summer. I figured it would smell better if I cooked it, but using a pan was too much of a bother, so I used the microwave, and it smelled really good♡. I then decided to turn it into a simple dried fish rice furikake. It made less trash, and I was able to eat something tasty; killing two birds with one stone!
You can also cook the shrimp shells in a pan instead of microwaving them. I think the cooking time depends on the microwave used, but please be careful to cook them through thoroughly.
