Trails to Tsukiji

Kuruma-Ebi

Season 1, Episode 25 of 52

This time, we focus on kuruma-ebi, considered the king of shrimp when it comes to Japanese cuisine. With its elegant appearance and full-bodied umami flavor, it's frequently featured as a good luck charm at celebratory feasts. We visit Amakusa, an island with spots recently given World Heritage status, and we also meet the producers dedicated to bringing the freshest, best-tasting kuruma-ebi to consumers.
