"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Directions:
Place the ginger, celery, scallions, coriander and mint on a large cutting board and pound with the bottom of a heavy saucepan until smashed. Place in a large bowl, and add mirin and sesame oil.

Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Heat a few drops of canola oil in a nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp in batches, and sear for 2 minutes per side until just opaque. Immediately add the shrimp to the marinade and toss to coat. (There will be very little liquid in the bowl.) Allow to cool, and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, tossing shrimp once or twice.

Serve mounded on a platter.
