Bonefish Grill’s Bang Bang Shrimp

This recipe will warm you up as we move into the colder weather. If you have ever been to Bonefish Grill, you know about their Bang Bang Shrimp. Now, I am scared to death to fry anything. (So if anyone is willing to teach me how, please let me know!) But, I figure I can fry shrimp, I can fry okra and I can fry pickles. That’s about it.

Bonefish Grill’s Bang Bang Shrimp

  • 2 pounds peeled and deveined Jumbo or large shrimp
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 well beaten eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup Corn Starch
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Oil for deep frying
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
  • 3-5 drops hot chili sauce, just a few drops


If you are in hurry you can substitute the shrimp with store bought pre-battered frozen shrimp.

DIRECTIONS:


Sprinkle shrimp with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt; let stand at room temperature for 12 minutes. Combine eggs, milk, corn starch, flour, baking powder in mixing bowl; mix until smooth. Heat oil in deep fryer to 350F. Add batter to the bowl with shrimp, stir till the shrimp is well coated with batter drop shrimp in the deep fryer and fry till golden brown (about 3 minutes).
In a separate bowl or a ( large zip lock bag ) empty one 12 oz. bottle of Bang Bang Sauce, drop the fried shrimp and still till all the shrimp is coated with the sauce. Garnish with fresh green or red hot peppers and serve with side of Bang Bang Sauce for dipping.
