dinner1712 I mentioned that the first meal I made for 2012, was grilled wagyu with a miso dip, well, I remembered another blogger used the dip for shrimp and had to try it too.

With the leftover dip, I added some water until it had the consistency of a marinade then put in 10 cleaned, butterflied shrimp in and left it in the marinade for about 2 hours.

I cooked them on a non-stick pan, just watch how hot your pan is, with the sugar in the marinade, you may burn your shrimp if you aren't careful.

I served this with some kinpira and leftover kamameshi.

Love the versatility of this dip, we've had it with grilled steak, with pork, veggie sticks and now shrimp...yum!

As the first meal for 2012, I'd say you started off on a very tasty note. Delish!
