Bang Bang Shrimp

How to Make

This homemade bang bang shrimp recipe is better than the restaurant version with grilled or fried shrimp tossed in a creamy, sweet and spicy sauce.



Make Bang Bang Sauce: – Whisk together all of the ingredients in a small bowl. – Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.


– Heat vegetable oil in a wide pot. Do not let the oil boil.  – Next, add the shrimp & buttermilk to a large bowl. Toss to coat the shrimp. Soak for a bit while the oil is heating. – Whisk together, add cornstarch, cayenne & a bit of salt & pepper into a separate bowl.


– Drain the shrimp and shake off any excess buttermilk. Coat the shrimp in the seasoned cornstarch mixture, then fry them until they are cooked through and start to lightly brown.


– Remove and drain the shrimp on paper towels. – Toss the shrimp with the bang bang sauce.



– Garnish with fresh parsley and spicy chili flakes.
