This recipe is very popular in Japan. It is called “Ebi-chilli-don” Ebi=shrimps, Chilli, Don-a bowl of rice. A hot bowl of rice and on top the Ebi-chilli, that is how you eat or how it is served in many restaurants. Men who do not cook very often, mostly the “salary man”, they make a joke by saying: “Yes, I can cook, at least a Ebi-chilli-don”!
I will copy the recipe from my book “Gohan No1” and you can adjust it based on your needs and taste.
