Copycat Bang Bang Shrimp Recipe

 

Have you ever tried the spicy Bang Bang Shrimp from The Bonefish Grill? Well let me tell you they are delish. I’ve lived in Florida for the majority of my life and loved going to this yummy restaurant for a monthly fix of some Bang Bang!

We haven’t had this dish in awhile so last night we tried this recipe sent to me by my father-in-law. This recipe is pretty darn close to the real thing. We loved the crust the cornstarch makes on the shrimp, it’s definitely coastal seafood restaurant quality, with a light crunchy coating.

The shrimp came out perfect. Even if you haven’t tried Bonefish’s version I know this recipe will be come a family favorite. It can be a little spicy for young children so serve it without the sauce for dipping for them. Enjoy!
