Shrimp Porcupine with Miso Aioli Sauce

For the Miso Aioli Sauce

* 1 cup mayonnaise

* ¼ cup white miso

* 1 tbsp rice vinegar

* 1 large garlic clove, minced

* 1 to 1 ½ tsp hot chili sauce (such as sambal oelek or sriracha)

For the Shrimp

* 40 to 60 shrimp (31/40), peeled, deveined

* 1 tablespoon of olive oil

* Kosher salt

* 1 Pineapple

* Wood skewers

Prepare the Miso Aioli Sauce

* Whisk all ingredients in medium bowl to blend.

Prepare the Shrimp

* Fill a sauté pan with water; add the olive oil and a nice pinch of salt. Bring to a rolling boil. Cook the shrimp in batches of 12-15, depending on the size of your pan. Cook them for 20 to 25 seconds and remove immediately with a slotted spoon and let them cool off on a plate or half sheet pan. They will taste crunchy and residual heat will finish cooking them while cooling off.

* Mount 2 or 3 shrimp on a skewer (depending on the length of the skewer); repeat until all the shrimp are on a skewer.

* Cut off the base of the pineapple, so it will stand flat on a plate. Poke the skewers in and around the pineapple in a V shape. Pour the Miso Aioli Sauce on small cups and place them around the pineapple.


* Miso aioli can be made 4 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate for up to one week.

* Any left over Miso Aioli Sauce can be used with other seafood dished such as Horseradish Crusted Ahi-Tuna.
