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.

Bon mots

"It is to be regretted that men of science do not interest themselves more than they do on a subject of such vast magnitude as [food]; for I feel confident that the food of a country might be increased at least one-third, if the culinary science was properly developed, instead of its being slighted as it is now."

-- Alexis Soyer (French chef. 4 February 1810 – 5 August 1858)
