The mantis shrimp has sickle-like claws and a spiny body. It has a crunchy texture and distinctive flavor and is best from spring to summer when it bears eggs.


While the shrimp are still rustling about, boil them in salt water. Best eaten while still hot, simply peel off the shell. People wary of its sharp spines may find it easier to use scissors. It can be eaten with horse radish mixed into a soy sauce dressing or with vinegar-miso dressing, or even deep-fried as tempura. As nigiri-zushi, the peeled mantis shrimp of the Kannonji area is known throughout the country.

The mantis shrimp, or Squilla empusa, is not, in fact, a shrimp. It belongs to the subphylum Crustacea and the class Malacostraca, which is the largest class of crustaceans, containing more than 20,000 species. Malacostraca is tremendously diverse and includes both marine and terrestrial species, including isopods (sowbugs), krill, mantis shrimp, shrimp, crabs and crayfish.


The mantis shrimp is properly neither a shrimp nor a terrestrial "mantis," but bears characteristics common to both. It has a shrimplike, segmented abdomen and carapace, swimmerets ("paddling" appendages beneath the abdomen), antennae, and large clawlike appendages, which are formed like jackknives, and which resemble both in action and at rest the appendages of a garden variety praying mantis. It is similarly aggressive in overpowering its prey.
