It’s always time for shrimp, especially when it’s got an extra kick. These keto bang bang shrimp have just the right amount of spice for your next meal!
By the way, if you haven’t figured it out yet, I am a lover of any and all Asian cuisine. Perhaps it’s part of my deep-rooted wish that I could eat delicious Chinese and Japanese foods for every meal.
However, I think it’s the way the flavors present in the cuisine is so different and unique in comparison to the majority of the food we eat in America. Either way, it’s a small fascination of mine that (hopefully) you enjoy as well.
To begin with, the first time I believe I had “proper” bang bang shrimp was at my all-time favorite restaurant, Stingrays. My wife ordered some and I was curious as to what they were. So then, I took a bite of one. The bang bang sauce was spicy and tangy with just a hint of sweet.
However, since the shrimp was breaded, I didn’t dig in like I would have loved (since I’m being honest here). If you live even remotely close to Stingrays, I urge you to add them to your must-visit list. They have some great low-carb dishes (seaweed salad is an all-time favorite of mine) and can make most of their sushi to fit in our way of eating as well.
For this recipe, we are going to use a lesser-known product by Huy Fong called chili garlic sauce. It’s got basically the exact same taste and ingredient list as Sriracha sauce EXCEPT it doesn’t include that one nasty ingredient named sugar.
The awesome chili spice taste is still there and since I’ve only ever had Sriracha once or twice before (I know, I know… it’s been all the rage since forever) I find the taste to be every bit as good.
Grab all the ingredients, heat your skillet, and ready your whisk and mixing bowl. It takes basically no time to make this keto bang bang shrimp and trust me, you’ll want to. It even got the two-thumbs-up and runny nose (the first batch might have been a little too spicy, but the jury is still out on that one) approval of my non-keto wife.
Take the ten or fewer minutes it takes to make this; your taste buds are begging you.
