Bang Bang Shrimp Copycat, from Shelli

Have you been to Bonefish Grill? Have you enjoyed Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer???? If so, then ZOMG you need to make this (when you feel like destroying your kitchen).


For the sauce:

1/2 c mayo
1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp Asian chili sauce (I used Sriracha <-- sp?)
2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp salt

Mix this up in a bowl, set aside in fridge

For the shrimp:

3/4 c flour
1/2 c cornstarch
1 tsp kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper
2 large eggs
1 1/4 lb medium shrimp (I used 31 - 40 ct)
Vegetable oil

Clean shrimp. Heat oil to 350* (I used a heavy bottomed sauce pan and put in enough oil to make it 1.5" deep).

Dredge shrimp in flour mixture (flour, cornstarch, salt, pepper) then dip into eggs (whip them up), then put them back in flour. Shake off excess, fry 'em up for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.

Drain on paper towels. After all are cooked, toss with sauce. Plate them up on shredded lettuce, garnish with scallions.
