Bang Bang Shrimp

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10-15 minutes (assuming you’re frying the shrimp in batches)

Servings: 4

For the Shrimp:

  • 1 lbs. large shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Bang Bang Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce (adjust for spice level)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

For Garnish:

  • Sliced green onions
  • Diced tomatoes


  • Heat the vegetable oil in a deep pan or skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Season the shrimp with salt and pepper.
  • Dredge the shrimp in the cornstarch, making sure they’re evenly coated.
  • Fry the coated shrimp in batches until they are golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side. Our functional medicine Los Angeles practitioners advise placing the fried shrimp on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  • While the shrimp is cooking, our functional medicine doctors recommend dicing your tomatoes and slicing your green onions.
  • Prepare the Bang Bang Sauce. In a separate bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, rice vinegar, sriracha sauce, and sugar. Taste and adjust the spice level with more sriracha if needed. Set the sauce aside.
  • In a large bowl, drizzle the crispy shrimp with the prepared Bang Bang Sauce. Toss the shrimp to coat them evenly with the sauce.
  • Garnish the Bang Bang Shrimp with chopped green onions and tomatoes.
  • Our functional medicine Studio City experts suggest serving your homemade Bang Bang Shrimp as an appetizer or over a bed of white rice or fresh lettuce.
