August 22, 2020 / by Junko


Another recipe that doesn’t use heat – all you need is a microwave oven!
Shihomi will be cooking steamed shrimps with a flavorful oil.
Since it’s very simple, we will be making a dessert that uses Japanese sake.

10 – 12 Shrimp (large)
potato starch (for preparing shrimp)
