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!




  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ¾ cup milk


  • 1 lb frozen, raw shrimp (thawed), shelled and deveined
  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • 1 ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dried basil


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside
  2. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl with a spoon. Cover and set aside until ready to use.
  3. In a small bowl, combine egg and milk and whisk together. Set aside.
  4. In a large ziploc bag, combine flour, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic, and basil. Zip closed and shake until mixed.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
