In this recipe, succulent shrimp is tossed in buttery umami goodness.  If you’ve never tried miso butter sauce I promise you’ll be doing a happy dance in your kitchen because it is so incredibly delicious and easy to make.   Sake, soy sauce, miso paste, chicken broth and oyster sauce come together in an irresistible combination sure to turn a simple family night dinner into a special treat.  I like to get premium oyster sauce from the gourmet section at Cost Plus World Market. 


2 tablespoons butter

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon minced shallot

1 green onion, (white and green parts), finely chopped

1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

2 tablespoons white miso paste

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon sake

1 tablespoon chicken broth

1 teaspoon oyster sauce

More finely chopped green onions for garnish


  • Heat a wok or large non-stick frying pan over medium high heat until hot. Add the butter, garlic, shallot and green onion. Stir-fry for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the shrimp and cook for 2 minutes or until it curls and turns pink. Add in the miso, soy sauce, sake, chicken broth and oyster sauce and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Garnish with green onions and serve immediately.
