Spicy Keto Bang Bang Sauce

WHAT IS BANG BANG SAUCE?

Bang bang sauce is a sweet, creamy, and spicy sauce perfect for coating seafood, chicken, beef, pork, or really… anything.

The sauce actually originated as part of the Bonefish Grill’s Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer. The original recipe contained mayonnaise, sriracha (or a sweet chili sauce), sugar, and maybe another hot sauce ingredient.

HOW IS THIS SAUCE DIFFERENT?

This bang bang sauce recipe is different from the original because it (of course) avoids anything with added sugars.

Sriracha is swapped out for chili garlic sauce, a much lower sugar but very similar in taste ingredient.

The sugar is substituted with monk fruit sweetener (or your sweetener of choice) for a keto and no-sugar copycat bang bang sauce!

KETO BANG BANG SAUCE INGREDIENTS

Before you set out to make this delicious bang bang sauce copycat recipe, make sure you have the following ingredients on hand first.

After you have all of this, you’re set and ready to go!

HOW TO MAKE KETO BANG BANG SAUCE

  1. Combine all ingredient together in a mixing bowl
  2. Use as either a dipping sauce or a coating on shrimp or chicken
  3. Keep refrigerated when not using
  4. Coat/dip and enjoy!

IS GARLIC CHILI SAUCE THE SAME AS SRIRACHA?

On the surface, no.

In fact, this question was the topic of a huge debate on the online forum, Reddit. Tons of people weighed in their thoughts on the topic. Most answers focused on the differences in the taste or the consistency of each sauce.

One answer stood out amongst the rest. It was simple, concise, and made a ton of sense.

Redditor “hatheaded” wrote the following:

Sriracha contains added sugar, which is then fermented to yield a sour note. Chili garlic paste doesn’t contain added sugar and is not fermented.

I tend to think of chili garlic paste as a seasoning/base ingredient to be cooked into or incorporated into the dish, and sriracha as a condiment, for the person eating the meal to add as they see fit. There’s no reason you couldn’t use the one for the other, though.

And, in short order, there you have it. The sauces contain most, if not all of the same ingredients. The main difference is the one thing we hate on keto/low-carb diets; sugar.

They are interchangeable as far as taste is concerned, so why not always use the one that has no added sugar?

HOW LONG WILL THIS SAUCE KEEP?

When stored in an airtight container, this sauce should last for up to a week in the refrigerator. Any remaining sauce after this time should be discarded.

If you’re using homemade mayonnaise, there might be some separation after sitting for a while. Just give the sauce a quick stir to remedy this.

WHAT TO USE THIS BANG BANG SAUCE ON

This sauce is absolutely delicious on any number of things. It makes the perfect dipping sauce, basting sauce, or coating for any meat.

It also makes the perfect sauce to add to all Asian-inspired dishes.

Is this sauce better eaten warmed up or refrigerated? Is there any concern with the Lakanto crystallizing? Thanks!

Mikayla,

It's definitely better warm. The sauce was actually born out of our Keto Bang Bang Shrimp recipe, where the shrimp help to heat it slightly after it is added to them. You also don't have to worry about the recrystallization of the Lakanto this way.
