Almond-crusted Shrimp at Nagoya

My boyfriend and I recently ventured south to check out Nagoya Japanese Cuisine in Southaven, Mississippi.

It was mid-afternoon, so the restaurant was almost empty. After starting our meal with those sweet-smelling hot hand towels and delicious miso soup, we ordered way too much sushi and a couple of different appetizers. The first one came out in less than five minutes — five huge shrimp breaded and completely covered in crunchy, sliced almonds.

I consider myself somewhat of a shrimp connoisseur (or maybe an addict). I love shrimp and have eaten them just about every way possible, including raw, so I feel I have the experience to state that the shrimp at Nagoya were by far some of the tastiest I've ever had. The almonds provided a very nutty flavor that worked really well with the mild shrimp, and the whole thing was fried to a perfect crisp and served with a salty and sweet sauce. Lucky for me, the arrival of my boyfriend's sushi distracted him long enough to let me snatch up the last shrimp on the plate between us.

There were several other items on the menu that we didn't get to try, like barbecue squid and sukiyaki, yam noodles in broth, which means we have to go back. Not that I'm trying to stuff my face with more almond-crusted shrimp or anything like that.
