Bang Bang Shrimp

This was such a great change of pace for us. It was something new, and a fun dinner where we had "night out" food. We very rarely eat at Bonefish Grill anymore - but I'm sure we have about the same eat-out ratio as most parents with young children! Here is the originial copycat recipe from Recipezaar.

I served the shrimp with roasted zucchini and a wild rice mix. I also loved this recipe because I finally sprang for a bottle of hot chili sauce. Hello new best friend! I've been putting this on everything!

Bang Bang Shrimp

1 lb shrimp, shelled and deveined (smaller shrimp works best)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
3-5 drops hot chili sauce, just a few drops
1/2-3/4 cup cornstarch, to coat the shrimp in

Mix mayo and sauces for coating.Bread shrimp in cornstarch.Deep fat fry the shrimp until lightly brown. Drain on paper towel, put shrimp in a bowl and coat with the sauce. Serve in a lettuce lined bowl, top with chopped scallions.

  1. Oh wow, that sounds good. I love spicy stuff. Would this work on chicken as well? I've got an awful lot of chicken stocked up in my freezer.

  2. This looks soooo yummy!! I written down a few of your recipes and plan on trying them this weekend!! Can't wait!

  3. noel2momof3: What a great idea to try it on chicken! I actually had a lot of sauce leftover and I am kicking myself that I didn't save it to try on other things since we enjoyed it so much!
