Easy Shrimps with Japanese Mayonnaise Stir-Fry (Ebi-Mayo)

Ebi-Mayo (エビマヨ) is a common home-cooked Japanese dish representing “ebi” (meaning shrimps in Japanese) cooked with sauce which consists of mayo (short for mayonnaise). The shrimps in this dish are usually fried first for some crisp before coating with the sauce. This recipe however is a simplified version where the fried step is eliminated. Hence the ingredients used in this recipe are more common since many Ebi-mayo recipes out there utilize condensed milk. Now with this recipe, I hope you can easily enjoy this Japanese dish at home!
