To make a copycat version of Bonefish's Bang Bang Shrimp, thoroughly clean and devein each shrimp. In a medium mixing bowl, add in the mayonaise, Thai sweet chili sauce and hot chili sauce. Mix well. Using a large mixing bowl, add the cornstarch and bread the shrimp by placing a few in at a time and placing on a rack.
In a large heavy bottomed pot, heat a few cups of oil on medium-high. Deep fry the shrimp until they are fully cooked and turn a golden brown color. Drain the excess oil from the shrimp by laying them flat on a paper towel for a few minutes. Add the shrimp to the spicy mayonnaise mixture and toss evenly.
To serve Bang Bang Shrimp, clean and wash a head of lettuce. Remove the lettuce leaves whole and line individual bowls or one large serving bowl with the leaves. Add in shrimp and top with freshly chopped scallions.Learn more about Cooking
