EBI SENBEI shrimp crackers are one of the most famous daily snacks in Japan. We at Hibiki-an selected one of the premium shrimp crackers manufactured in Japan. Round and cherry-pink color crackers are extraordinarily crispy and light, and pair very well with Japanese green tea.

EBI means shrimp, and SENBEI means Japanese cracker. These crackers are made on the Chita peninsula in Aichi Prefecture, which is surrounded by two gulfs. This area is well known for its excellent and plentiful seafood. The catch of shrimp in this area is very abundant, which makes it possible to use fresh shrimp for these EBI SENBEI.

Crispy texture and spicy aroma of EBI shrimp is the main feature of this SENBEI. Minced shrimp are mixed with potato starch, and baked by rolling machine in two to three minutes. The potato starch creates the crispy texture and the special baking process enhances it even more.

Generally, shrimp crackers are fried, and seasoned after the frying process in order to enhance its crispiness and flavor. However, our shrimp crackers are not fried but baked, so that the texture is very light and healthy. Compared with the frying process, the baking process usually weakens the flavor, but a lot of shrimp are mixed into the dough, so that these EBI SENBEI have a deliciously robust shrimp flavor.

Adding to that, shrimp are used not only in the dough but also on the surface of the crackers. One small piece of shrimp is placed on the surface during the baking process. Fresh shrimp are directly baked by rolling machine, so the crispy and fragrant aroma of shrimp is enjoyed for a long time.

EBI shrimp crackers are a very simple snack, but this process enhances the aroma of shrimp much more. Once you try these EBI SENBEI, not only the delicious taste of shrimp but also the aroma expands in your mouth.
