The recipe to make Bang Bang Shrimp from Bonefish Grill involves ingredients such as mayonnaise, rice vinegar, chili sauce, cornstarch and breadcrumbs, among others. It also involves methods of cooking such as making the sauce, setting up the dredging station, and breading and frying the shrimp.
The sauce served with Bang Bang Shrimp includes 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons hot sauce, 1/3 cup sweet chili sauce and 1 teaspoon of rice vinegar. The breading ingredients are a 1/2 cup cornstarch, 2 eggs beaten with 2 tablespoons of water, 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper. A 1/2 teaspoon table salt, 1/4 teaspoon onion and garlic powders, oil and 1 pound of medium shrimp, peeled and de-veined, are also necessary ingredients. The garnish requires a handful of mixed greens and a green onion.
The first step involves whisking the sauce ingredients together, covering and refrigerating them. Add the cornstarch to a shallow bowl, and beat the eggs in another. Whisk the flour, panko, salt, pepper and all other spices in a wide separate bowl. Coat the shrimp with cornstarch, then dip in the egg, and allow the excess to drip. Coat with the bread crumb mixture, and set them on a platter to refrigerate for 20 minutes.
Heat 1 to 2 inches of oil in a Dutch oven or saucepan to up to 350 degrees F. Fry the shrimp on a wire rack for three to four minutes, or until golden brown. After frying the shrimp, set the greens on a platter. Top with the shrimp, and drizzle with the sauce. Garnish with green onions, and serve.
