  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 6 tacos



  • Combine the shrimp with the egg whites and hot sauce and let stand for 10 minutes.

    In a large heavy cast iron skillet, pour enough oil into the pan so that it comes up about 1 ½ to 2 inches up the side of the pan. Heat the oil to 350° F.

    Remove the shrimp from the marinade and toss with the cornstarch. Fry the shrimp, in batches, for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the shrimp to a paper towel lined platter. Season with salt and pepper.

    To make the tacos:

    Spread about 11/2 teaspoons of the Sambal Mayo onto each tortilla. Divide the shrimp between the tortillas. Put about 1 teaspoons of the pickled red onion on top of the shrimp on each taco. Drizzle with the eel sauce and garnish each with about 1 teaspoon of wasabi tobiko. Garnish the tacos to taste with more of everything!


    Serve immediately.
