  • 1 lb Jumbo Shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup buttermilk or sub with 1 cup whole milk and 1 tablespoon lemon juice and let it sit for 5 minutes first
  • ¾ cup cornstarch or substitute with potato starch/tapioca starch
  • 1 cup vegetable oil or any neutral oil
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 green onion finely chopped for garnish
  • Bang Bang Sauce:
  • ½ cup Japanese mayonnaise or substitute with normal mayo
  • ¼ cup Thai Sweet Chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoon sriracha sauce add more if you like it spicier
  1. In a medium bowl with peeled and deveined shrimp, add buttermilk. Let this sit for 10 minutes for shrimp to tenderize.
  2. In a small bowl, combine Bang Bang Sauce ingredients as listed. Set aside.
  3. In a shallow bowl or baking sheet, whisk together cornstarch, salt, garlic powder and black pepper.
  4. Coat shrimp in cornstarch mixture by dredging it on both sides.
  5. In a large skillet (10-inch) or heavy bottom pan, add oil. Heat oil on medium heat. Once oil is hot, fry shrimp in batches. Fry shrimp on each side until golden and crispy, about 1.5 minutes per side. Do not overcrowd the hot oil or the shrimp won't be crispy. Also do not overcook the shrimp.
  6. Remove and set aside the cooked shrimp on a wire rack or paper towel lined plate to remove excess oil.
  7. Transfer crispy shrimp to a large bowl. Pour sauce over top. Gently toss to mix.
  8. Garnish with green onions. Enjoy!
