Shrimp Cocktail with Wasabi Mayo

“This is a very easy dish to prepare and does not take more than 15 minutes,” says Zod Arifai, executive chef/co-owner of Daryl in New Brunswick. “It can be prepared ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator. We use size U12 (super colossal) shrimp. Most markets sell the extra-jumbo size (16-20 count).”

“This version is a little simpler than what we serve in the restaurant. There we add rings of peeled, cored pear, which you can add also, if you like.”
