Bang Bang Shrimp Recipe


  • 1 lb shrimp, deveined & peeled

Milk mixture-

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp sour cream
  • 2 tsp lemon juice

Flour mixture-

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • ½ tsp table salt
  • ¼ tsp ground paprika
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper


  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp Sriracha (useless if you don’t like spicy)
  • canola oil for frying


  • Devein and remove tails on the shrimp. Pat shrimp completely dry. 
  • In a medium bowl, combine the ingredients for the sauce. Set aside.
  • Prepare the milk mixture in bowl 1 and the flour mixture in bowl 2.
  • Dredge shrimp in the milk mixture, then, generously coat in the flour mixture. Place onto a platter. Continue with remaining shrimp.
  • In a skillet, over high heat, cover bottom with oil. Once the oil is hot add shrimp, don’t overcrowd the skillet. 
  • Fry shrimp 2-3 minutes per side, until crispy and cooked through.  If you will be working in batches, add the fried shrimp to a baking sheet and place it in a preheated oven to 375°F to keep it hot and crispy while the remaining shrimp are cooked. 
  • Once all of the shrimp are cooked, pour the sauce over the shrimp and gently coat. (TIP: The sauce may be poured over the shrimp in the baking sheet or in a bowl.)
  • Serve!
