Bang Bang Shrimp

If you feel like a restaurant-quality meal but want one that's quick and super easy, I've got the recipe for you! We have four kids and sometimes it's easier to keep them at home than to take them all out. We've started the "tradition" of making our favorite restaurant meals at home. Sometimes it can be a little daunting but this time Tastefully Simple made it super easy for me! We've introduced a new, limited-time Ginger Orange Sriracha Sauce and when that kick is combined with the cool tangy flavor of Vidalia® Onion Dressing, the combination is perfect for bang bang shrimp. And, you can make it in 20-25 minutes! Use your leftover Vidalia® Onion Dressing to make a little coleslaw and you've got a meal in minutes! And you didn't even have to go out to get it.

Easily thaw shrimp by running cool water over them in a colander for 5-7 minutes. Turn your colander occasionally. While the shrimp is thawing, heat up a thin layer of oil in a frying pan.

Ingredients

Directions

In a large bowl combine Vidalia Onion Dressing and Ginger Orange Sriracha Sauce and set aside. Pat shrimp dry and coat in cornstarch. Add a thin layer of oil to a frying pan. Cook shrimp over medium heat for a couple of minutes on each side, approximately 3-5 minutes total, until shrimp turns pink. Remove shrimp from oil and drain on paper towels. Toss shrimp in a bowl with sauce mixture. Serve immediately over coleslaw or in tortillas, or as is.

Tips and Hints

  • Save yourself some time and purchase peeled, deveined shrimp. Many brands even come with tails removed.
  • For this recipe, smaller shrimp are better.
  • If you aren't a "spicy" eater, just use less Ginger Orange Sriracha Sauce. You'll still get the great taste, just a little less heat.
  • This is great with coleslaw! Just buy a bag of coleslaw mix, pour your remaining Vidalia® Onion Dressing over the top and toss. Serve the shrimp over the coleslaw or add the shrimp and coleslaw to a flour tortilla. For a spicier coleslaw, double the Bang Bang Shrimp sauce recipe. Toss the sauce with the coleslaw mix. Remember, you can control the heat by adding more or less Ginger Orange Sriracha Sauce.
  • These would make great appetizers for a party. Leave toothpicks next to the dish and your guests can help themselves.
  • If you'd like a heartier meal, serve over your favorite rice or with a side of veggies.
