There is nothing better than some good shrimp. Whether it is an appetizer, or for the main dish, shrimp are a big hit. One of the really nice qualities of shrimp, is that they are incredibly versatile, and taste great grilled, sauteed, fried, baked, boiled, or served as a cocktail, with a squeeze of lemon. Even if your not a big shrimp fan, I think this Bang Bang Shrimp recipe might just change your mind. It is awesome and needs to be shared with all.
The first time I had Bang Bang Shrimp was at Bonefish Grill, and it was delicious. A mix of crunchy, crispy fried shrimp coated in a slightly sweet, spicy, creamy sauce, served on top of a bed of lettuce. It is awesome, and clearly lots of people think so. Since first tasting the yummy bits of Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish, The Hungry Wife has noticed similar items popping up on menues in restaurants like Applebee’s and TGI Fridays. Now you can make Bang Bang Shrimp at home, and enjoy it whenever you want. This recipe is straight forward and easy to make, so next time you are looking for a way to cook up some shrimp, give this a try.
