Bang Bang Shrimp Recipe

Bang Bang Shrimp

Bonefish Grill has the best Bang Bang Shrimp recipe and here is my copycat version!

bang bang shrimp ingredients

This is a specialty dish, that you can get as an appetizer at Bonefish. I am not a huge fan of shrimp normally, but even I like this one! They use Sambal I believe in the original version to give this dish it’s heat. This one is made with ingredients you will find in your grocery store easily.

If you don’t like to buy a big thing of buttermilk, I get a canister of powdered and only make what I need for each recipe! Use peanut oil to fry up your shrimp.

Deep fry shrimp by preheating (canola, vegetable, or peanut) oil to 375 degrees F. Carefully place a small amount of breaded or battered shrimp in cooker. Fry shrimp 2 to 3 minutes, depending on size of shrimp, until golden brown outside and opaque in the center.

Grill or broil shrimp by skewering peeled shrimp in a “horseshoe” fashion. That is, thread the shrimp onto the skewer at its head and at its tail so it curves around in a U-shape. Place 4 inches above a preheated gas grill or charcoal grill at 375 degrees. To broil, place shrimp 4 inches under a heat source. (Leave oven slightly open when using an electric range.)

Butterfinger Eggs

Butterfinger Eggs

Homemade Butterfinger Eggs are easier to make than you would think. I was shocked at how much like the original or BETTER they turned out!

These are not difficult to make at all, and so good to eat you should make some!

You are only going to need 3 ingredients. I am serious, only 3 :) If you can’t find candy corn this time of year, my dollar stores had them, and even Walmart had a bag.

After microwaving the candy corn and stirring in the peanut butter you can form them to any shape. So eggs for Easter, even balls to be coated in white chocolate for baseballs! You can make anything out of them!

These are even good with white chocolate coating or almond bark! I did dip some of mine twice so they had a thick coat of chocolate.
