Bang Bang Shrimp

I absolutely love bang bang shrimp. I remember hearing people rave about the bang bang shrimp at Bonefish Grill. The first time I went I had to get them & I did (because I wasn’t GF/DF at the time) and I LOVED them.

A few years ago I made bang bang shrimp at home & was trying to make them a little bit healthier.  I figured I’d try to replicate the sauce but just not fry the shrimp.  They were amazing!  We’ve been eating them like that since! 🙂


You can yell at me for this – but I didn’t measure.  I have a bad habit of not measuring anything I cook/bake and I just eyeball everything.  I’ve been trying to get better at it but sometimes I just completely forget or I’m in a hurry and just whipping stuff together.

Bang Bang Shrimp



Sweet Chili Sauce

To give you a guestimate, I probably used about ¼ c mayo, 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce, and 1 tablespoon sriracha.  I started with the mayo. Then I added in sriracha until I was happy with the spice.  Honestly, just add a little at a time and taste test.  Then I added in my sweet chili sauce to tame it a bit & give it that amazing bang bang shrimp taste!!! 🙂

I bought 1 lb shrimp (fresh never frozen from North Carolina – ohhh fancy) and peeled them, cleaned them, and sauteed them until they were a pretty pink.  Then I added my bang bang sauce over top in the saute pan & let it warm up & get a little bubbly (It only takes about a minute).

I promise next time I make the bang bang sauce I will measure it to tell you exactly what I use. 😉
