How to Make Bang Bang Shrimp-

  • Devein and remove tail on the shrimp. Pat shrimp completely dry. (TIP: If shrimp is not completely dry, they will not turn out crispy and the flour will not stick.)
  • In a medium bowl, combine the ingredients for the sauce. Set aside.
  • Prepare the milk mixture in one bowl and the flour mixture in a second bowl.
  • Dredge shrimp in the milk mixture. Then, generously coat in the flour mixture. Place onto a platter. Continue with remaining shrimp.
  • Fry the shrimp. (TIP: Oil MUST be hot. To test the readiness of the oil, add a few drops of cold water, if it sizzles, the oil is ready.)
  •  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.      (TIP: Two large skillets may be used to cook all of the shrimp at once.)
  • 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 immediately.
