Shrimp Shabuki in Golden Enoki Ponzu Sauce
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
w W and DJ
Shabuki works with any kind of meat amenable to being quickly cooked in bite-sized pieces in boiling stock, such as shrimp, as here.
Ponzu is a Japanese sauce. It’s soy sauce + lemon juice + sugar.
Whereas ponzu is the dipping sauce of choice in our home, I highlight the addition of golden enoki mushrooms, which had played a prominent role in another dish a few days ago (see 2.066 Risotto with Pan-Seared Scallops and Golden Enoki Mushrooms). Here, the fragrance of the mushrooms was so powerful that the ponzu immediately took on the flavor once the mushrooms were tossed into the bowl, raw, just prior to dining. Good stuff.
