Spicy Bang Bang Shrimp


For The Shrimp:
Oil, for frying
2½ lbs shrimp
4 eggs
1½ cups flour
1 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon pepper


For The Sauce:
¾ cup mayonnaise
½ – 1½ Tablespoons Sriracha
1 Tablespoon honey


40 minutes




  1. Whisk all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl or a glass measuring cup. Set aside in the refrigerator while you prepare the shrimp.
  2. Pour in about 2 – 3 inches of oil into a dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot.
  3. Peel, devein and clean the shrimp. (see below for directions)
  4. Set up a breading station for the shrimp.
  5. Whisk the eggs in one bowl and combine the flour, cornstarch, salt and pepper in another bowl.
  6. Dredge the shrimp in the flour/cornstarch.
  7. Dip the shrimp in the eggs. Dredge one more time in the back into the flour/cornstarch mixture.
  8. Bring the oil to a temperature of 350º D. Drop the shrimp in and fry for about 2 min, just until the breading is slightly golden and the shrimp is pink.
  9. To keep the shrimp warm while you are frying the rest of the batches, place the shrimp on a rimmed baking sheet, lined with paper towels and keep in a 200 degree oven.
  10. Toss the shrimp in the sauce and serve.
