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


  • 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.
