Mix mayonnaise with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce. Add hot sauce to taste. Dredge the shrimp in cornstarch. Deep fat fry the shrimp until lightly brown. Drain on paper towel, put in a bowl and coat with the sauce. Serve in a lettuce lined bowl, top with chopped scallions.

If you don't love this you did something wrong. When frying something with just cornstarch you must let it sit for a couple of minutes. toss the shrimp and cornstarch before you do anything else. Make sure the oil is at 350 and I cooked mine for less than a minute - overcooked shrimp is yuck. Also, here in the south we have Dukes and Blue Plate mayo. I wouldn't use Helmens or Miracle Whip, find a nice QUALITY mayonnaise or the flavor will be off.
Excellent recipe. The only thing I did was do add significantly more Sriracha sauce. Big raves by the whole family. Wife says, "We need to have Bang Bang Shrimp more often." Thank you.

I prepared this recipe with popcorn chicken as I don't like shrimp. It was fantastic!! In fact, I found it to be even better than Bonefish Grill's version. I would highly recommend the recipe!
This is great! To make it faster and easier I made the sauce and just used frozen breaded popcorn shrimp. I also use it with frozen popcorn chicken. Kids love it and it is a fast easy party snack.
this was really good, i've never tried the actual bigbang shrimp from bonefish but i've always wanted to try out this recipe. it is really good! do not bother making panko/tempura batter, cornstarch works just as good. it makes it very crunchy! i eyeballed everything, but i halved the recipe (since i was making a small batch) and put extra thai chili sauce. if you hate mayonnaise like i do and worried that this will taste just like it (like i was).. it doesn't!
Made this tonight and it was FANTASTIC! Only deviation was marinated the shrimp overnight in garlic infused olive oil. The corn starch put a nice crisp on the shrimp and it was great. Wife loved it and she is a picky eater. Great recipe!!
Wow! This is so close to what's served at the restaurant.
Because my hubby is prone to gout he has to avoid eating shrimp so when I made this a second time I substituted small pieces of skinless, boneless chicken breast. It was also yummy.
One word delicious!
Being a hardcore Bang Bang Shrimp fan this got pretty darn close. It was not perfect, but with some doctoring from the original recipe equalled in a pretty tasty result!
I did not try the peanut butter, I DID try adding several drops of LEMON JUICE and about 1/2 tbs to 1 tbs of WHITE VINEGAR... This seemed to make the taste more true to Bonefishes recipe. It also helped neutralize the sweet taste between the mayonnaise and sweet chili sauce.

Made this shrimp recipe for a girls bunko gathering and it was a big hit. Several ladies asked for the recipe and for me the best part was how easy it was to make as I am culinarily challenged;)
I have made a variation of this recipe for years, i use equal parts thai chili and mayo though. Another cool thing to do is make a sort of pasta with it. mix equal parts mayo and thai chili sauce (heat in microwave or stove to "thin" the sauce a bit) boil up a batch of noodles (spaghetti, linguini etc) and cook up some shrimp. mix em all together for what we call at my house "bang bang pasta" it is GLORIOUS, and a great way to turn the appetizer into a whole meal! youre welcome in advance!
I turn this into a complete 1 bowl meal. I also lightened it up a little by using canola mayonnaise and instead of frying I bake in the oven. I dredge in the cornstarch, followed by egg beaters, then panko breadcrumbs. I mix in lightly steamed veggies. Tonight it will be broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots and will serve over soba noodles. Also, the last time I made this for company I was afraid it would be too spicy so I tamed the sauce down with lite coconut milk and it was a hit!
great! the only thing is that the salad is not only lettuce. there is also purple cabbage (not sure what its called) and spinach
This recipe was wonderful!!! I wouldn't change a thing! The entire family loved it!!!
