Mmmm, bang bang shrimp. I’m not sure there was ever a more delicious dish. This savory, spicy dish is the ever so popular appetizer at Bonefish Grill. And today, my friends, you can make it yourselves and have it at home!
Bang Bang Shrimp
adapted from my fridge food
1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined and cleaned
Vegetable oil for frying
1/2 C light mayonnaise
4-5 tsp Sriracha (chili garlic sauce)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp rice vinegar
1/2 to 1 C skim milk
3/4 C panko bread crumbs
3/4 C all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp black pepper
Mix together the ingredients for the sauce. Cover and set aside. Beat the egg and milk together in a shallow dish and set aside. Mix together the ingredients for the breading in a shallow dish and set aside. Cover a baking sheet or large plate with parchment paper.
To bread shrimp, dip shrimp in breading, dip in egg mixture, then back in breading. Place breaded shrimp on covered baking sheet. Once all shrimp is breaded, place baking sheet in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
Meanhwile, heat the oil in fryer to 350 degrees. Don’t worry if you don’t have a fryer; you can also fry these in a shallow skillet over medium high heat. Fry shrimp in batches for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
If you haven’t tried this dish at Bonefish Grill, you really need to. OR, you can have it homemade! This copy cat recipe is pretty dang close to exactly what the restaurant version tasts like.
