  • 1 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Mirin

  • If you're using bamboo skewers as your skewer of choice, let them soak in water for 30 minutes prior to using in order to avoid splintering. If you're using metal skewers, ignore this step.
  • Combine all ingredients for the shrimp marinade in a medium bowl. Add shrimp and then cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • While shrimp marinates, combine all ingredients for the Scallion relish in a medium bowl except the olive oil. Slowly stream in olive oil while whisking, simultaneously, until ingredients are well combined. Set aside until ready to serve.
