Food, souvenir

Usually called “sweet shrimp,” they have the special nickname “nanban shrimp” in Niigata because their color and shape resemble chili peppers, or “nanban.” They are caught off the shores of Sado Island at a depth of 300-500 meters. They are sweet in flavor with a unique texture different from that of other shrimp.
 The sweet, melt-in-your-mouth meat makes them perfect for sushi and sashimi.
