Recipe by Z-chef
Finally! I've been experimenting with different "copycat" recipes for Bonefish Grill's Bang Bang Shrimp for a couple of years. Finally, the Food Network folks have nailed it!! This recipe is in the April 2010 issue of Food Network Magazine. The only change I made was to add some Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce to add more zip. Serves 4 as an appetizer or 2 as a main dish.
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons Asian chili sauce
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1 -2 teaspoon sriracha hot chili sauce
- 1 lb medium to large shrimp
- 2 large eggs
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- scallion, finely sliced, for garnish
