Bang-Bang Shrimp

I found this on It is a really good steal of the Bonefish recipe. Just don’t try to bread them all at once, it doesn’t quite work.


  • 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
  • 4-5 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar


  • 1 lb medium shrimp, sans tail
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1⁄2 cup flour
  • 1⁄2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon dried basil
  • vegetable oil, for frying

Combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl, cover and set aside. Combine beaten egg and milk in shallow bowl, set aside. Combine flour, panko, salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and basil in another bowl; set aside. Bread shrimp by first coating in the bread mixture, then in the milk, then back in the breading mixture. Arrange coated shrimp on a plate and chill them in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Next, heat your oil in a deep fryer, or large pot to 350°. I didn’t measure it, but make sure you have enough to completely dunk your shrimp. When the oil is hot, fry shrimp for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, then put in a large bowl and coat with sauce.
