Bang Bang Shrimp

Bang Bang Shrimp

by Nicole on May 14, 2012

The name on this cracks me up because it reminds me of a super funny guy I worked with years ago as a waitress. He was a line cook who always had a line for the ladies. One of his famous ones being “Bang Bang.” Aside from his sometimes overly fresh ways he was quite a sweet guy and he always showed me respect and made me laugh.

I originally made this recipe with Chicken and it was wonderful. I wanted to try something a little different. I had some quite enormous shrimp that were begging to be breaded so it was meant  to be. The dipping sauce is really tasty and could be used for lots of other dishes as well. This would make a really easy and unique appetizer you could prepare ahead of time and fry up when your guest arrive.

Bang Bang Shrimp
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 3
  • ½ cups Mayonnaise
  • 5 teaspoons Sriracha Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Rice Vinegar
  • 1 lb Jumbo Shrimp (cleaned and deveined)
  • 1 Egg Beaten
  • ½ cups Milk
  • ½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ½ cups Panko Breadcrumb (I used Chipolte flavored)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Cayenne Pepper to taste
  • Oil for frying
  1. Mix ingredients for sauce (Mayo, Siracha, Rice Vinegar and sugar) set aside
  2. Combine egg and milk, set aside
  3. In a shallow bowl combine all ingredients for breading (Flour, Panko, Salt, Pepper and Cayenne)
  4. Bread the shrimp by first coating it in the bread mixture then the egg wash then back in the breading.
  5. Place all the shrimp on a plate and refrigerate for 20 minutes (it will help breading to stick)
  6. Heat oil till warm enough to sizzle when shrimp are added
  7. Cook shrimp in batches placing on paper towels after to drain.
