Inspired by the garlic shrimp served from food trucks along Oahu’s North Shore, this buttery shrimp is classically paired with “two scoops rice,” as they say there.

We enjoyed this a lot. I followed the great suggestions of other reviewers and added scallions along with cilantro and also doubled the amounts of paprika and sake the recipe calls for. I am giving the recipe four stars instead of five, though, because I find it very annoying when recipes call for unnecessarily large amounts of ingredients. In this recipe, the problem is the flour--3/4 of a cup of flour is about 3 times as much flour as you will actually need to dredge one pound of shrimp.
Easy, wonderful dish! The pineapple and spring onions sound like a great addition, next time.
Wow. My family doesn't even like shrimp and they devoured this. They had about three servings each and complained that I didn't buy enough shrimp. Super fast and easy to make on a weeknight - make sure to do all of the prep though before you start cooking the shrimp because it cooks fast. Served with rice from my rice cooker. Will be making this again!
Overall good weeknight meal. I didn't see what was really Hawaiian in this recipe so I added pineapple, spring onions, and I substituted lemon juice for lime juice. Tasty meal without too much effort.
