I've been trying to get this recipe right FOREVER but I haven't been able to worm my way into the kitchen at Bonefish Grill just yet. They lie to me like the worst of ex-boyfriends. This is as close as I got, help me out here! It's a great recipe, just not quite the real deal. Reviews TOTALLY welcome.

Thank you for a lovely recipe. Very easy and quick and soooo tasty. I had to sub a little with what I had on hand, namely garlic pepper in place of garlic powder and I used crayfish (lobster) tails instead of shrimp. The spiced cornflour coating is mild, but very tasty, the crayfish was very tender from the buttermilk and the dipping sauce is absolutely yummy! Served in avocado halves and will definitely make again.

This was the best tasting version of the BG dish that I've found. Although there are recipes that are easier (less ingredients that is) that are almost as good. Just a note to JPKnight22 -Sriracha is the name of the type of chili sauce (comes from the Thailand town), Huy Fong is a brand (that's the one with the rooster on the bottle).
