Updated: Jun 5, 2023



Who doesn't love the delicious appetizer at Bone Fish Grill, Bang Bang Shrimp? This is my take on that dish. Bangin Chili Lime shrimps are Crispy, Spicy, and Creamy, with a twist of zesty lime. Served with a spring mix strawberry salad and a strawberry vinaigrette.


Let's set the mood, for a romantic dish for two by candlelight. This dish is your go-to recipe. It's fresh and light but full of umami flavor.


Bangin Chili Lime shrimps are coated in a spicy lime and sweet chili sauce, fried to perfection. The creamy sauce coats the shrimp with just the right amount of zest and tang. Leave your mouth watering bangin for more.




Did You Know!


The name Bang Bang Shrimp is Thai in origin coming from the Thai sweet chili sauce that coats the fried shrimp in goodness. Now the word Bang Bang comes from a popular Chinese dish made on the streets of China in Szechuan called Bang Bang Chicken. This name derived from the way the meat is tenderized using a stick or hammer.
