Servings 4 servings



  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha


  • 2-3 cups vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 pound raw medium shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 12 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • optional chopped green onion for garnish


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, honey and sriracha to make the sauce.  Set aside.  
  • In a separate, large bowl, whisk buttermilk, flour, and cornstarch together.
  • Stir the shrimp into the buttermilk mixture, covering evenly. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together Panko, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.  
  • Place the oil into a heavy bottom pan.  You want to have about 1 inch of oil in the pan.  Turn the heat to medium. If you have a thermometer, you want to get the temperature to about 375 degrees.  
  • When the oil is heating, lightly strain the shrimp, then dredge in the panko mixture, and place in the hot oil. It only takes 1 or 2 minutes per side to be fully cooked.  Fry only a few shrimp at a time or the oil temperature will drop and you won’t get a crispy texture.  
  • hen you remove the shrimp from the frying pan, place it briefly on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb excess oil.  Then toss the shrimp with the sauce.


Bang Bang Shrimp will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge. Be sure to place it in an airtight container. Or you may freeze the shrimp for up to 3 months.
