Bang Bang Shrimp – The most amazing shrimp appetizer; it’s crispy, spicy and the sauce is to die for. You will crave for more.

If you are a fan of both spicy and creamy, I would no doubt convince you simply by  saying creamy spicy shrimp. If, however, you need additional convincing I am brimming with information to help lead you right into the kitchen and get cooking with this sizzling sexy shrimp appetizer. Did you hear that ?

Sizzling Annd Sexy!!! Oh yes! Watch me do my dance.  

Now, why spend time reading when you can be cooking up a storm in the kitchen and dancing after your first bite?

 I can say for sure you would not have any leftovers once you are done.

In fact, you might end up eating the whole thing; I made a pound of these shrimp and was left with only about 6 pieces of shrimp, which I am eating today for breakfast – cold out of the fridge. Whenever this popular shrimp appetizer is on a restaurant menu, I am all over it.

 

Here is the deal. You can go easy on the Chili sauce- if you like spicy but not overly hot- 2 teaspoons would be a good balance. However, 4 teaspoons  is just perfect for me- the sweetness from the honey balances everything out.

 

This crispy shrimp is banging- that is all I can say! Don’t be surprised that you would not be able to get the hit song – Bang Bang by Jessie J off of your head once you make this shrimp. Ha, sorry I had to include that musical reference.

My friends, it is BANGING and I’m sure you want it!

 

Tips and Notes:

  1. After coating the shrimp, chill it in the fridge for 10-20 minutes to make sure the coating stays on the shrimp while frying.
  2. Do not overcook shrimps or else it’ll get rubbery. Deep fry the shrimps for only 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. If you like spicy but not overly hot- 2 teaspoons of chili sauce would be a good balance. However, 4 teaspoons  is just perfect for me- the sweetness from the honey balances everything out.
  4. If you want to be on the healthier side, instead of deep frying, you may bake the coated shrimps. Place it first on a baking sheet sprayed with a cooking spray and bake for 7 minutes or until done.
