serves four

1/2 cup Wanjashan organic ponzu
2 tablespoons agave nectar, honey is good substitute
2 tablespoons chopped chives, save a little for garnish
8 U-15 shrimp, tail-on
8 slices of bacon, thick-cut
1 head radicchio, leaves separated
Togarashi to garnish
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Pre-heat the oven to high broil and place rack in the upper middle. In a bowl, combine ponzu, agave nectar and chives. Wrap the strip of bacon around each lightly seasoned shrimp. On an oven-proof dish, lay out the radicchio leaves. Dip each shrimp in ponzu-agave mixture and place on bed of radicchio. Drizzle the mixture on exposed radicchio, too. Place in oven, turn shrimp once when browned, about 3 minutes per side. Serve on same dish and garnish with togarashi.
