Wow.

I don’t know who came up with the recipe for Bang Bang shrimp first , but God bless them.  Because it’s good.

I found this recipe floating around the web a few months ago.  Only later did I discover that it’s a copy cat recipe for a very popular appetizer at Bonefish Grill.

Double battering the shrimp ensures a super crispy coating.  And the sauce is creamy, tangy, and spicy.  According to The Husband, it was the best thing I have ever fried.

I have never eaten at Bonefish Grill, so I can’t say for sure that this recipe tastes just like the original.   But honestly, who cares?  It’s amazing.  Just make it.

Ingredients

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2-4 teaspoons chili garlic sauce such as Sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar

For the shrimp:

  • 1 lb. medium shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2-4 cups vegetable oil

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine egg and milk. Add shrimp and stir to coat.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, breadcrumbs, salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and basil. Pour half of the bread coating into a large resealable plastic bag. Add shrimp, seal bag, and shake until shrimp is thoroughly coated.
  • Return shrimp to the egg mixture; coat. Pour the second half of the breading into the plastic bag. Add shrimp and shake until thoroughly coated.
  • Refrigerate shrimp for 20 minutes to ensure the coating adheres to the shrimp.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add shrimp and fry, turning halfway through, until golden brown, about 2-4 minutes.
  • Remove shrimp from oil and place on paper towels to drain.
  • Drizzle sauce over the shrimp or serve alongside as a dipping sauce.

    Great! Glad to have you!

  2. I LOVE this shrimp at Bonefish Grill! Your photo is magical! I’m a new email subscriber 🙂

    Oh, that’s a great idea pairing it with peanut sauce! I bet it was good. I’m glad it was a success. Thanks for coming back and sharing.

  4. I tried it with chicken just now and paired it with a randomly made peanut sauce. Let me just say that it is absolutely fantastic! Great recipe! Thank you so much for this 😀

  5. Panko must have made them crunchy! Looks very appetizing. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  6. This will be another treat i will make for my husband. He adores shrimps and shrimp dishes. This looks lovely indeed!

  7. The Cooking Bride

    Yes, I think this would work very well with chicken. If the coating starts to brown too fast, adjust your heat.

  8. Would I be able to substitute chicken for this? I feel like the coating would brown faster than the chicken would cook…Any suggestions for a college student strapped for cash but still looking for a lot of flavour?

  9. The Cooking Bride

    I actually had the same idea. I plan on trying the coating out on chicken strips sometime soon. I think it would be perfect!

  10. This sounds amazing… I wonder how it would be with chicken instead.. my husband doesn’t do shrimp lol. — formerly Heels and Meals
