Place shrimp in 1-gallon zip-top bag; add buttermilk. Marinate 1 to 8 hours.
Mix cornmeal, flour, salt and pepper in another zip-top bag. Add shrimp, a handful at a time, shaking off the buttermilk a bit and then adding to the flour. Zip the bag and shake to coat.

Mix sauce ingredients. If it needs more "heat", add more chopped jalapenos and/or juice. Serve shrimp with dipping sauce.
