Bang Bang Shrimp is a quick and easy weeknight dinner idea with a tangy, yet sweet sauce! This recipe calls for baking, NOT frying the shrimp for easy clean up!
You know, that’s the new thing with food blogging now. Not only do we have to be recipe developers, writers and photographers…we now have to add in videographer to our list of skills. Oh wait, I forgot to mention social media marketer and dishwasher.
But, if it means we get to try new foods, I’m all in. After all, food is why I continue doing what I do. Mostly 😉
Typical Bang Bang Chicken recipes are deep fried. But why not bake them? And if you can bake chicken, you most definitely can bake shrimp.
I bought raw, frozen shrimp that was already peeled and deveined. I mean, if you love peeling them and taking out that poop vein, by all means go for it. But this momma ain’t got time for that. And there is so much flavor in the breading and the sauce, cheap frozen shrimp WORKS for this recipe.

Bang Bang Shrimp is an quick and easy weeknight dinner idea with a tangy, yet sweet sauce! This recipe calls for baking, NOT frying the shrimp for easy clean up!
FOR THE SAUCE:
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 1/2 Tbsp chili garlic sauce (I use THIS brand)
- 1 tsp granulated sugar
- 1 tsp rice vinegar
FOR THE EGG MIXTURE:
- 1 egg, beaten
- 3/4 cup milk
FOR THE BREADING:
- 1 lb frozen, raw shrimp (thawed), shelled and deveined
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside
- Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl with a spoon. Cover and set aside until ready to use.
- In a small bowl, combine egg and milk and whisk together. Set aside.
- In a large ziploc bag, combine flour, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic, and basil. Zip closed and shake until mixed.
- To begin, bread the shrimp by first dropping it into the ziploc bag and shake a few times. Then dip breaded shrimp into the egg and put back into the ziploc. Once coated, place each piece of shrimp onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
- To cook, bake on pan for 10 minutes. Flip shrimp and bake an additional 5 minutes or until done. Once done, add half of the sauce to the shrimp to coat (while the shrimp is still hot). Sprinkle with a little extra dried basil and serve with sauce on the side. ENJOY.
