From Kitchen In Tokyo : Week 6, 2021
Konnichiwa! How are you?
It’s still cold here in Tokyo. We don’t have snows here but my hometown (northern part of Japan) snows a lot every winter.
February 3rd is normally the day of Setsubun. Setsubun refers to the day before the beginning of each season. (the first days of spring, summer, fall and winter). The literal meaning of the word Setsubun is “seasonal division”. Out of all the 4 Setsubun days, Risshun (the first day of spring) is the most special day.
To celebrate this special day, my family and I visited the Japanese restaurant and had the huge Ebi-Furai (fried shrimps)! I have never seen and eaten in my life! Just surprised. The shrimp itself was big and also it’s coated with lots of panko (bread crumbs). So, super crispy and fulfilling!
I use small to medium size shrimps in my recipe video but if you are interested in how to make the Ebi Furai (Japanese fried shrimp) & Japanese version Tartar sauce, please check here!
Keep warm & Stay healthy!
