So apparently this is a dish from Bonefish Grill. Admittedly I’ve never been there, but I’ve seen this recipe floating around Pinterest for years. It always looked really, really good but was coated in cornstarch and tossed in rancid vegetable oil mayo, which just sounded gross to me.

And then I thought, I can just make paleo bang bang shrimp. No cornstarch, no sketchy ingredients and no heart attack inducing vegetable oils.

  1. The worst shrimp ever!!! This put a jelly like slime over the shrimp rather than a fried coating. I had to throw away $15 worth of shrimp because it was not at all edible.

      I’m sorry to hear that. Sometimes if your oil isn’t hot enough before you add your food, it will soak up the oil rather than crisping up.

      You could try but it’d have a coconut flavor and wouldn’t be as crispy

  2. Fabulous!! We loved it, served them on a fresh bed of spring mix.
