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.

How to Make Bang-It-Up Shrimp


  1. To make the sauce: Mix mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, hot chili sauce, Tabasco, and peanut butter together until creamy. Set aside.
  2. Rinse the shrimp in cold water. Dry on paper towel. In a bag add the cornstarch and all the shrimp and shake. Coating all the shrimp well.
  3. Frying the shrimp: I use either tail-on or tail-off shrimp. You can deep fry or pan fry. Fry until lightly brown. Drain on a paper towel.
  4. Once you have drained all the shrimp on a paper towel add all the cooked shrimp to a bowl and coat with the sauce. Serve in a lettuce lined bowl, top with chopped green onions.
