Stellar Sesame Shrimp with Miso Dipping Sauce

Becky Luigart-Stayner

The shrimp are best prepared the day of the party and refrigerated up to eight hours. Make the miso dipping sauce up to three days in advance, and chill. Kosher salt gives an added crunch to the shrimp.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 2 shrimp and 2 teaspoons sauce)
