"Every summer I leave Seattle and go up to my family home, British Columbia. While we do a lot of fishing for salmon and foraging for oysters and clams, my favorite seafood we acquire are the spot prawns. We catch them in traps set down nearly 400 feet and they are the most delicious shellfish I have ever had. No de-veining necessary and perhaps, just perhaps, better than lobster. I separate our catch by size and freeze them in bags in the ocean water they came out of. When I want to have a taste of summer I use this marinade. Delish!"

This is a marvelous marinade that adds a little zip without overpowering the flavor of the shrimp. I substituted the mirin with white wine and a little sugar and it came out great. We loved it.
