Bang Bang Shrimp Copycat

Bang Bang Shrimp Copycat
Serves: 2-4

If you have ever been to Bonefish grill and ordered their appetizer - the bang bang shrimp - then you have undoubtedly been addicted upon your first bite. Not the healthiest shrimp dish out there -but so tasty that its definitely worth a splurge now and then - especially when you make it yourself and know exactly what goes into it.


1 lb. medium raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

For the sauce:

1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons thai sweet chili sauce
1 teaspoon siracha or hot chili paste - or more depending on heat level
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 chopped scallion

For the Tempura Batter:
1 cup of rice flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 cups of club soda - chilled
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Combine all ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl; cover and set aside.

Combine flour, soda water, corn starch, salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder in another shallow bowl; set aside.

Bread the shrimp by first coating each with the tempura mixture.
Heat oil in deep fryer to 350 degrees F.
When oil is hot, fry shrimp 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on a rack.

When all shrimp has been fried, drop the shrimp into a large bowl. Spoon sauce over shrimp and stir gently to coat.

Top with chopped scallions, serve with brown rice and steamed edamame or sugar snap peas.
