Bang Bang Shrimp…

If you’ve been to Bonefish Grill, you know EXACTLY what Bang Bang Shrimp is AND if you’ve tasted the delicacy, you probably find yourself CRAVING it from time to time. So I found a recipe that was suppose to be a copycat recipe-it was good but not as good as Bonefish. I did have trouble with the coating on the shrimp. The sauce had a good flavor- next time I’ll make it hotter. It said to just coat shrimp with sauce- we heated the sauce and I liked that better. Good little appetizer! And yes- it goes very well with Sangria!


Jumbo Shrimp (the bigger the shrimp=the bigger the bang)

  • Rice flour (recipe called for cornstarch- I changed to rice flour)
  • Mayonnaise (NOT low fat)
  • Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (Do not compromise this. KEY ingredient. It’s the bottle w/ the rooster)
  • Sweet Thai Chili
  • Rice Wine vinegar


Soak shrimp w/ milk or buttermilk. Coat w/ Rice flour. Flash fry in oil. Drain off oil. Stir sauce in with shrimp.


Begin with 1/2 cup of mayonnaise (adjust amount of mayo depending on size/amount of shrimp). Begin by stirring in 3-4 tablespoons of Sweet Thai Chili depending on desired spice level.  Then, stir in 2-3 tablespoons of Hot Sauce depending on desired spice level. 2 Teaspoons Rice Wine vinegar.  Mix well. Stir into lightly fried shrimp.

    Bob’s Red Mill products are amazing, especially for those with allergies or gluten issues. I have done some research into this company and a lot of my pantry items are his. I’m glad to know that he treats his employees like family and is willing to give them so much! You are right Kay… this is what it should be about! Giving back to the people that make you successful! Love it!

    In the pic I saw Red Mill flour. This past week, the owner of the company gave the company to his employees, right down to the janitor. He said they are his family, they built the company, and he couldn’t sell it to someone else. It is worth well over $100,000 to each employee, now that’s what America should be about!
