Bang Bang Shrimp

imageLast night, my sweet hubby took me to Bone Fish Grill for dinner. We have been wanting to go back since we ate there in Ft Lauderdale, FL a few years ago and have just discovered that there is now one here. So off we went, all the while talking about the first thing we will do is order the Bang Bang Shrimp. If you have never had these, all I can say is, if you live anywhere close to a Bone Fish Grill, get there as fast as you can and order these little darlings. Your life will never be the same. As soon as we got in the car after dinner, we googled to see if there was a copy cat recipe of this and sure enough there it was. So am posting this to encourage you to make your way into this restaurant if possible, and if not, do yourself a favor and make this.

1 lb shrimp, shelled and deveined (smaller shrimp works great, but not the tiny ones)

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup Thai sweet chile sauce

3-5 drops hot chile sauce

1/2-3/4 cup cornstarch, to coat the shrimp

Mix may with sauces for coating the shrimp. Set aside.

Bread shrimp in cornstarch.

Deep fat fry the shrimp until lightly browned.

Drain on paper towel, putting shrimp in a bowl and coat with the mayo sauce.

Serve in a lettuce lined bowl, top with chopped green scallions.


One thought on “Bang Bang Shrimp

  1. Well, guess I just have to write you again and thank you for the Bang Bang shrimp recipe. Bonefish Grill was one of our favorite places to eat in SC and we would go as often as we could on Wednesday nights, because the Bang Bang shrimp were only $5 ! Up until now the only Bonefish Grill we have found within driving distance is in Southlake. I’m so happy you’ve found one….please tell me where it is ! Thanks, Connie
