Let’s talk about date night. Or girls’ night. Or whatever night it is that you tend to hit up a favorite restaurant and order up a mess of appetizers.
Sooooo, every night? Are we talking about every night? It’s cool.
Well, I have been busy perfecting this Bonefish Grill Bang Bang Shrimp copycat recipe so that you can skip the restaurant, save a few bucks, and eat dinner in your jammies. You’re welcome.
This Bang Bang Shrimp is beyond easy to make. It sounds intimidating, but the sauce is just a few ingredients that you’ve probably got hanging out in the fridge. Grab yourself some shrimpies from the freezer and you’re ready to do this.
You’re going to want some small shrimp as well as a little cornstarch and flour for coating the shrimp, along with some seasoned salt. For the sauce, you need mayo, sweet chili sauce, and sriracha. Easy to the peasy.
The sauce just gets stirred together real quick. Don’t even take a single taste of it, because if you do, you’ll find yourself slurping it up with a straw. Don’t ask me how I know that.
Coat your shrimp in the seasoned flour mixture.
Dunk it all in a pot of hot oil and fry until golden, crispy and heavenly.
Pop the shrimp on a paper towel-lined plate to drain the grease. Try not to eat them all...they’re so much tastier once they hit that sauce!
Give the shrimp a quick dunk in the sauce and then set aside on a paper plate to let some of the extra sauce drip off.
Place the saucy little guys in a lettuce-lined bowl to be all fancy and authentic. Sprinkle with green onions and dive in!
