Had a wonderful dinner with a bunch from the office the other night at Bonefish Grill in Rogers. This place was hopping all the way from early happy hour to lining up out the door at 8:30pm when we left. Glad we got there early...it's always packed! As usual, we all agreed we must have the Bang Bang Shrimp before our meal. And as usual, it was absolutely delicious! And, for those times we don't get to go out with the office gang it's nice to have a copycat recipe to make Bang Bang Shrimp at home. Found this one on my favorite foodie website Group Recipes posted by Reginnia0221 and I can't wait to copycat it! If you're not familiar with the Thai Sweet Chili Sauce and Sriracha Hot Sauce, you can find them in the ethnic isle at your local grocer. They really make the dish. Enjoy!!
How to make a copycat version of Bang Bang Shrimp:
1 lb. shrimp, raw, shelled, and deveined
Dry cornstarch, for dredging the shrimp
Hot oil, for lightly frying the shrimp
Scallions, chopped for garnish

A few drops of Sriracha Hot Sauce (you choose the heat level)
1. Dredge shrimp in cornstarch.
2. Heat oil and fry the shrimp till lightly, brown.
3. Drain shrimp on paper towel, put them in a bowl of shredded lettuce, mix the sauce ingredients, and pour over the shrimp. Garnish with the scallions.
