  • ½ - ¾ cup cornstarch, shake off excess
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1-2 cups vegetable oil, for frying the shrimp

Spicy Sauce

  • 5 tablespoons kewpie mayonnaise, regular mayonnaise works too
  • 2.5 tablespoons sriracha
  • 2.5 tablespoons Thai sweet chili sauce

Vegetables, Sides and Garnishes

  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 1 avocado, peel, remove pit, and slice
  • ½ cup English cucumber, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped small
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 large lime, cut into wedges


  • 1 pot to fry shrimp
  • 1 colander
  • 3 mixing bowls


Prep the Vegetables, Rice and Sauce

  • Slice the cucumber, avocado, jalapeno, chives, limes, and cilantro. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Combine kewpie mayonnaise, sriracha, and Thai sweet chili sauce in a small mixing bowl. Whisk well, then cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
    Cook the rice according to the package.

Prep the Shrimp

  • Peel and devein your shrimp. Be sure to remove the tails. Toss the shrimp in buttermilk, making sure they’re well coated. Drain the buttermilk in a colander and add the shrimp to a large mixing bowl.
  • Toss the shrimp with cornstarch until they are well coated. Making sure to shake off any excess cornstarch.
  • Add vegetable oil to a large pot. You’ll want about 1-inch of oil in the bottom of the pan. Heat the oil until it reaches 350-375 degrees. Fry 5-6 shrimp at a time making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side or until the shrimp are crispy.
    Use a spider strainer to remove the shrimp from the oil. Place the cooked shrimp on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil. Repeat for all shrimp.
  • Add all of the cooked shrimp to a clean mixing bowl and toss it with the spicy sauce. Make sure the shrimp are well coated in the sauce.


  • Add rice and vegetables to the bowl. Add the hot bang bang shrimp. Serve immediately and enjoy.
