Stir fried shrimp mixed with a creamy sweet and spicy chili sauce served on a bed of shredded lettuce and purple cabbage topped with scallions. This is a bangin' good slimmed down copycat recipe of Bonefish Grill's very popular Bang Bang shrimp. Takes about 10 minutes to prepare which makes this perfect for lunch, as an appetizer or even a light meal.
With the popularity of Thai food, ingredients like Thai Sweet Chili Sauce and Sriracha are very easy to find in your local supermarket or even stores like Target depending on where you live. Look for the Thai Kitchen line, I used their sweet chili sauce in this recipe.
