I can not for the life of me figure out where I got this recipe. I printed it up a while back and no where does it say where it’s from.
Anywho it’s awesome and it you like Bonefish’s bang bang shrimp you will love this.
For the Spice Mayo
1/2 cup of Mayo
1/4 cup Thai Sweet Chili Sauce (Or just chili sauce)
2-4 tsp sriracha hot sauce
1 tsp peanut butter
In a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients.
For the shrimp
1 lb raw shrimp, pealed & deveined, tailed removed. (you can also get the cooked ones cause they are literally in the pan for such a short amount of time)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1 cup corn starch
6 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
In large bowl toss the shrimp with the salt, pepper & garlic powder.
Place corn starch in shallow dish and lightly whisk two eggs together in another shallow dish to create a egg wash. Dip each shrimp in corn starch to coat, then dip in egg wash and set aside. (I do this all while the oil is hot in a kind of assembly line)
Heat oil in a large skillet on high heat. When the oil is hot carefully add the shrimp. Cook 30 second to 1 minute per side until crispy (C shape means they are done). You may need to cook these in a couple batches. Don’t over crowd the pan.
Remove shrimp onto a paper towel lined plate.
At this point you can add the shrimp to the spicy mayo or you can have the spicy mayo on the side. I like to let everyone add how much they want to their tacos.
Then add whatever you like to a flour tortilla. I like lettuce or coleslaw you get in the bags and cheese on mine.
