Grilled Miso Shrimp
Grilled Miso Shrimp is the umami (the fifth taste sensation) of grilled seafood. Fresh shrimp are marinated in a white miso sauce and grilled, this will be your new favorite summer seafood grilling recipe.
Memorial Day is approaching, also known at the unofficial kick off of summer grilling season and if you like grilled shrimp, you’ll fall in love with this recipe!
The miso marinade/sauce is mixed with mirin (sweet rice wine) and sake and is very similar to the sauce used for Nobu Miso Cod (without added sugar).
For this recipe I like to use white miso. It is the most mellow and sweetest of all the miso pastes and works best for this recipe. Yellow is saltier and more acidic. Red is pungent and stronger in flavor.
I like to use ryorishu, which is similar to white wine.
Grilled Miso Shrimp Serving Suggestions:
You can serve this grilled miso shrimp as an appetizer or mix them with noodles. Additionally, I have a hoisin noodle recipe that I like to serve with them and that recipe is coming soon! I also like to add them to my 20 Minute Vegetable Fried Rice which makes for a quick summer meal.
Side dish suggestion:
Another side dish I like to serve with this shrimp is Edamame and Snap Peas with Sesame Ginger Dressing Recipe.
About 3 minutes on the first side, just until they don’t feel like they are sticking and lift off the grill easily, then a couple more minutes on the second side.
I prefer to grill my shrimp on skewers, if not, you do risk losing some in the depths of your grill. The skewers are very inexpensive and I just buy them from the grocery store. I also prefer the metal ones over wood as wood skewers should be soaked in water before grilling so they don’t burn.

What gorgeous shrimp! They look and sound absolutely delicious. Congratulations on 400 posts too 🙂
What a gorgeous-sounding recipe, Janette. Can’t wait for the accompaniments. Coconut rice… mmm!
Oh, and congrats on reaching 400 posts! Now for the next 400!
I can’t wait to make this recipe. It looks perfect for me! I don’t have any sake or mirin in the house, so I’m wondering if I could make this white white wine instead. Or maybe broth? Otherwise, I have everything for this recipe right now! mmmmmm! And that whole meal sounds great- waiting for those other two recipes now!
Wow, 400!? Congratulations!!! I absolutely love using miso in seafood marinades – it’s adds such wonderful complexity without overpowering the dish! And the zippy lime – perfection! Pinning!
Love the flavors! Looks delicious! Will try it for my next barbecue!
