Bang bang shrimp is a classic Bonefish Grill appetizer. We are giving you the secret to their dish so you can make it at home.
At least once a month, I ask my husband to take me to Bonefish Grill to get an order of bang bang shrimp. It’s my favorite because the shrimp is crispy and the creamy sauce is spicy. It’s the perfect balance of spices and flavor. I always add a little extra Sriracha to my sauce mixture but if you prefer things mild only add a little. Trust me, you’re going to love this delicious dish.
