Shrimp Shichimi Kushiyaki

2 lbs. large shrimp (10-15/lb.) approx. 24
1 large green bell pepper
1 large red bell pepper
1 large yellow bell pepper
2 large Maui onions
1 12 oz. bottle of Gyotaku shoyu Vinegar Dressing
Japanese shichimi pepper spice, to taste

Peel and devein shrimp; leave tail section on. Remove core from bell peppers and cut into strips that are the same width as the shrimp. Cut onion in half and separate onion layers two at a time. Cut the onion into strips the same width as the shrimp. Skewer the shrimp and vegetables alternating the tails left to right. Use two skewers so that the shrimp and vegetable form a plank that is easy to handle on the grill. Marinate skewers in Gyotaku shoyu Vinegar Dressing for 30 minutes to 3 hours in the refrigerator then season both sides with fresh ground shichimi just prior to broiling on the BBQ or in the oven, about 3-5 minutes per side. Brush lightly with dressing again just before serving.

Dice the avocado into 3/8" pieces and combine with poke, toss lightly. Place the chips on a large plate and top evenly with the poke avocado mix. Squeeze the yama imo evenly over the poke and chips. Sprinkle daikon sprouts and sliced green onion on top. Top with nori and sesame seeds and serve immediately.
