Tips and tricks for making dynamite shrimp?

  • Use jumbo large shrimp for ease.
  • Use kitchen shears to cut along the top of the shrimp to butterfly the shrimp. Then take a knife to cut it a little more so it will lay flat.  Try not to cut all the way through.
  • Prep in advance and then place in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
  • If you can’t find Kewpie mayo, you can sub it for American mayonnaise.
