Spicy Wild Shrimp Tartare (appetizer serves 2)

Here is another recipe that I made using fresh off the boat, New Hampshire wild shrimp. The recipe is inspired by eating some of the spicy tuna tartare.  I must warn you these are very addicting!!

Spicy Wild Shrimp Tartare (appetizer serves 2)


30-35 fresh New Hampshire wild shrimp (shell, tail, and head removed)
1 Tbsp chopped scallion or chives
2 Tbsp finely chopped red onion
1 Tbsp chopped cilantro
2 Tbsps hellmann's mayonnaise
1 tsp Sriracha hot chili sauce (more if desired)
1/4 tsp sesame oil
1/4 tsp lemon juice
A pinch of zest from a lemon
A pinch of white or black pepper


1) Mix mayonnaise, hot sauce, juice and oil together.  Add shrimp and mix well.
2) Stir in scallion or chives, onion, cilantro, salt and pepper to taste, mix well.
3) Serve immediately on crackers or toasted crostini/bread.

*Fresh shrimp is very difficult to peel since the shell is attached tightly to the shrimp body.  If you wait until the next day the shrimp will peel much easier but remember that they will be day old shrimp!  
*If you are going to eat raw seafood:  Eat only what is very fresh, eat sea life that have been caught in clean water and always buy from a reliable source.  If you do not catch your own seafood I highly recommend that you get to know your local fishermen and fish mongers.  
*F/V (fishing vessel) Rimrack is a family owned fishing business located in beautiful Rye Harbor, NH. Thank you Rimrack for the amazingly fresh and tasty sea life!!  Please support and buy from your local fishermen.  If you are interested in buying from F/V Rimrack please visit their website:  Rimrack staff is very friendly and helpful and they will happily assist you.
