An essential Japanese appetizer or snack food is ebi mayo. It is a shrimp dish with a mayonnaise based sauce and the shrimp is shallow pan fried to create a bite sized morsel. You can often find it on izakaya restaurant menus. It is relatively easy to prepare, and serves as an alternative party snack.
Soak the shrimp in the sake in a shallow pan for 3-4 minutes. Coat the shrimp in cornstarch after removing it from the sake bath making sure to coat all sides. Fry the shrimp in about 1/4" of cooking oil until crispy brown on all sides. Mix milk, ketchup, honey, and Japanese mayo for the sauce. Place the shrimp on a plate or serving tray and drizzle sauce over the shrimp, or alternatively serve the sauce in a side dish for dipping.
