Ebi Senbei, shrimp rice crackers, is a popular snack in Japan, especially in Nagoya, Aichi. Instead of artificial flavors, ebi senbei crackers are made with actual dried, mashed shrimp. Ebi senbei is said to have begun as a type of non-perishable food, growing into a well-known snack across the country. Ebi Senbei are popular for their crunchy texture and rich shrimp flavor. While some may question why the Japanese would use high-quality, fresh shrimp for crackers, some argue the starch from the senbei brings out a special flavor that can't be enjoyed as sushi or deep-fried as tempura. The shrimp crackers come in a variety of flavors and shapes, depending on the type of shrimp used and cooking style. Shrimp crackers are a delicious, traditional Japanese snack with an incredible shelf-life that goes with anything. Children and adults alike can find comfort in a bag of ebi-senbei made with Nagoya's fresh shrimp. After a long day in the office, nothing beets unwinding with fresh ebi senbei and a nice, cold beer.
