Bangin Good Shrimp
Bangin Good Shrimp- A healthier, slimmed down copycat recipe of Bonefish Grill’s very popular Bang Bang shrimp recipe.
Bang Bang Shrimp
This shrimp is out-of-this-world good, made with 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. Takes only 10 minutes to whip up which makes this perfect for lunch, as an appetizer or even a light meal.
What is Bang Bang Sauce?
It’s simply three ingredients, mayonnaise, sriracha and Thai Sweet chili sauce. You can adjust the heat to your comfort level. To lighten it, I used less mayo and opted for Hellman’s light. Since shrimp is naturally a low-calorie, zero point food, this dish is easy to fit into a healthy lifestyle.
This Bonefish Grill Bang Bang shrimp knock-off is also great as tacos. To make them, heat up some corn tortillas and pile everything on top. Also great as a pizza topping, and I’ve also made this with chicken, for those of you who don’t like shrimp. The sauce is so good, you’ll want to make it again and again.
With the popularity of Thai food, ingredients like Thai Sweet Chili Sauce and Sriracha are very common ingredients and easy to find in your local supermarket or even stores like Target depending on where you live.
