Odori Ebi



Odori Ebi is a Japanese sashimi dish which is a shrimp still alive. It is very expensive to order because preparation must happen very quickly and skilfully to keep the shrimp live.

A live shrimp is shelled, then the head removed, and the shrimp served to you while it is still twitching on the plate.

The head and shell are sometimes quickly deep-fried and served on the side.

Kuruma shrimp are often used.

Language Notes

"Odori Ebi" means "dancing shrimp" in Japanese.
