Crunchy Bang Bang Shrimp has a multitude of uses. You can put it in a taco, on a salad, next to rice, or mixed in with pasta. The fried shrimp is tasty on its own, but when you add the sweet-spicy sauce, it takes the crustaceans to the next level. Even timid seafood eaters will love Bang Bang Shrimp; it’s explosively good twice over!


Ingredients

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
1/4 teaspoon sriracha
1 pound shrimp, shelled and deveined
1/2 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup cornstarch
canola oil, for frying

Directions

Step 1

Combine the mayonnaise, Thai sweet chili sauce, and sriracha in a small mixing bowl.

Step 2

In a separate mixing bowl, toss the shrimp in the buttermilk. Once coated, remove the shrimp from the buttermilk and allow any excess to drip off the shrimp.

Step 3

In another bowl, toss the shrimp in the cornstarch.

Step 4

Add 2-3 inches of canola oil to a pot or Dutch oven and heat to 375 degrees F on the stovetop. Continue to check the temperature of the oil throughout the cooking process.

Step 5

Fry the shrimp in batches until somewhat brown, about 1-2 minutes on each side.

Step 6

Place the fried shrimp on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

Step 7

Coat the shrimp with the sauce and serve immediately.
