Bang-It-Up Shrimp

Vicki Moser


This is my [CopyCat] version of Bonefish Grill's Bang Bang Shrimp. I first heard about this appetizer from my son. He said it was so good and I just had to try it. I did try it...but only after I came up with this recipe. I found a recipe online and after a little modifications here is what I came up with. I really think I came up with a hit...a little better tasting then the original. By the way my 8-year-old daughter and 7-year-old grandson love's not too hot for their little taste buds.
