Sautéed Shrimp with Wasabi Mayonnaise

Sautéed Shrimp with Wasabi Mayonnaise

Serves 6

A touch of wasabi in the mayonnaise adds just the right amount of zing to the sautéed shrimp. Look for wasabi paste at the sushi counter. Make sure to leave the tails on when peeling the shrimp to make them easy to grab and dip.

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons wasabi paste
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons grated ginger
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on
  • Ground black pepper to taste

Stir together mayonnaise, grated ginger, lime zest, 1 teaspoon of the lime juice, sugar and 2 teaspoons of the wasabi paste. Taste and add more wasabi, if you like, until it is spicy without being overwhelming. Set aside. Put oil, garlic, chopped ginger, and remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice into a wide, shallow dish. Add shrimp, toss to coat all over with marinade and set aside for 15 minutes. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until just cooked through. Season with pepper and transfer to a platter. Serve shrimp with wasabi mayonnaise on the side.
