I’ve been a big fan of the Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer at Bonefish Grill for years now. There is also a similar dish at Cheesecake Factory that is served as a main dish over a bed of rice. This recipe is incredibly easy to make and very tasty. In fact, I tried it for the first time about a week ago and have made it 3 times now in about a week. Other than a pile of dishes you’ll have to clean up from the prep work, it’s pretty hard to mess this one up, so check it out and let me know what you think.
Bang Bang Shrimp Ingredients
1 – 1.5 lbs of shrimp, peeled and deveined
2-1 ratio of flour to corn meal for the breading
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
Bring a few Tbsp’s of vegetable oil up to medium heat in a skillet. While the oil is heating up, whisk together the mayo, sweet chili sauce and a squirt of Sriracha in a bowl and set aside. Beat the eggs, combine the flour and corn meal, then dip the shrimp in the egg wash then coat in the flour/corn meal mixture. Fry the shrimp for about 1.5 min per side then set on a plate w/ some paper towels to let drain for a couple minutes. Toss shrimp in Bang Bang sauce and serve. Enjoy!
