bang bang shrimp

This shrimp dish has been on my list for over a year, and I just got around to finally making it yesterday. This Bang Bang shrimp is a copycat of the famous Bang Bang shrimp at Bonefish grill. It’s deep fried shrimp tossed in a creamy, sweet and spicy sauce. I can’t believe I waited so long to try this recipe. It was amazingly addictive. The sauce is so good. It’s sweet, spicy and full of flavor. I served it over simple steamed white rice and garnished with fresh green onions.

And if you like to eat locally, this is a great recipe to try because we have some amazing shrimp here in Florida. After all, we are surrounded by water on three sides – so we produce some great shrimp. Almost all of our shrimp caught here in Florida are flash frozen on the boats, so even if you live across the country, you can enjoy Fresh from Florida shrimp too, just check the packaging to see where it came from. When you’re buying fresh Florida shrimp, be sure to get the frozen ones if possible. It’s better to purchase shrimp that’s been flash frozen and thawing it a few hours before you’re going to use it than buying shrimp that has been thawed for who knows how long ago in the case.

    This didn’t taste like Bonefish’s – I found another version online that tasted more like it. The sauce is off.

    what am i to do with the sesame oil and honey? both listed in the ingredients, but no instruction is given. Does it go into the sauce mixture?
