One of the best parts about this crispy BBQ katsu shrimp slider is the coleslaw, made with red & green cabbage, some kewpie mayo and some rice wine vinegar.

Topped with panko-fried shrimp, and coleslaw, all served on a soft, fluffy KING’S HAWAIIAN Original Sweet Roll, you might need to watch your plate, because this delicious tailgate snack will most likely get intercepted if it’s left unguarded.

Ingredients:

For the Katsu sauce
1/2 cup KING’S HAWAIIAN Smoked Bacon BBQ Sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp Mirin
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp soy sauce  

For the cabbage slaw
½ head cabbage, julienned
½ cup kewpi mayo

For the shrimp
20-30 medium raw shrimps, peeled & deveined if possible
4 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups Panko breadcrumbs
KING’S HAWAIIAN Original Sweet Rolls

Step 1

Combine all ingredients for katsu sauce in bowl. Transfer to a pan and cook on medium/low heat (DON’T boil) and reduce until sauce coats the back of a spoon.

Step 2

To prepare the slaw, mix cabbage with kewpie mayo, rice wine vinegar, and salt, pepper and togorashi to taste.

Step 3

Peel shrimp and devein if you did not buy from the store already done. Crack eggs in a small bowl and whisk with a pinch of salt until completely homogenized for egg wash. In another bowl, add all-purpose flour. Add panko breadcrumbs to another separate bowl.

Step 4

Heat up a skillet or deep fryer with canola oil to 350 F. Dredge shrimp in flour and then in egg wash. Finally, coat in panko bread crumbs. Once all shrimp are coated, fry in the deep fryer until golden brown. Immediately transfer to paper towel to blot excess oil and season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

To assemble the slider, coat the inside of the KING’S HAWAIIAN rolls with the Katsu sauce. Add cabbage slaw, fried shrimp, and add top bun to finish. Enjoy!

Pizza Hut’s Giving Out 10,000 FREE Pizzas For Watching ESPN

Pizza-Hut-Rebrand

Pizza Hut announced that they’re now the official pizza sponsor of ESPN College GameDay Built By Home Depot. While it’s a mouthful to say, they’re hoping a mouthful of pizza will make things easier. The pizza chain is giving away 10,000 large one-topping pies.

How to get free pizzas

On the first College GameDay telecast, Saturday Sept. 5, viewers will have to look for a sign that unlocks the special Pizza Hut offer. Anyone who spots it will see a code that allows them a free large one-topping pizza.

Once they have the code, patrons have until Sept. 11 to claim their pizza at PizzaHut.com. The code will expire once it’s been used 10,000 times, so fans are advised to not lag.

As if anyone would when it comes to free pizza.

Taco Bell Pulls Ad That Hates On Vegetables

The Taco 12 Pack vs. Veggie Sticks

Taco Bell will be pulling one of its commercials where it basically clowned on “Veggie Guy.”

We all know “Veggie Guy,” he doesn’t know what to bring to the party on gameday, stops by the local supermarket and buys a platter of cold vegetable sticks.

If you’re a sports fan you’ve probably seen this Taco Bell commercial a fair amount of times over the last couple of weeks. The antagonist in the commercial walks into a house with his veggies and the narrator says that bringing veggies is a “Cop out” and “Secretly, people kind of hate you for it.”

Taco Bell got a lot of heat on Twitter for its harsh comedic views on “Veggie Guy” and will be pulling the plug on the ad.

Of course, the Twitter attacks were not without a leader — the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a health advocacy group, led the torrent of complaints.

‘Til then, we’ll see if Taco Bell gets any complaints from its other commercial where it makes fun of the guys who bring cheese and crackers.

Apparently, if you’re not taking Taco Bell tacos to the couchgate party, you’re doing it wrong.
