Dancing shrimp

"Dancing shrimp" redirects here. For the shrimp species, see Rhynchocinetes uritai.

Odori ebi (踊り海老/躍り海老?, "dancing shrimp") is a delicacy of Sashimi. The sushi contains baby shrimp (Pandalus borealis) still alive and able to move its legs and antenna while being eaten. The meal is prepared quickly to keep the shrimp alive, usually dunked into sake in order to intoxicate the shrimp. The person eating the shrimp usually dips the live shrimp into a special dipping sauce and quickly chews on the animal to kill it.

The head and shell are sometimes quickly deep-fried and served on the side.

Kuruma shrimp are often used.
