  • 1 pound shrimps peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup corn flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Canola oil for deep frying

For the sauce-

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoon Thai sweet chili sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoon sriracha or as per spice preference
  • 1 teaspoon honey optional

For garnish-

  • Green onions
  • Toasted sesame seeds


  • Remove the head and peel the shell. Devein and clean it thoroughly.
  • Using kitchen towel, pat dry shrimp completely.
  • Pro-Tip: Your shrimp wont turn crispy as expected if you do not dry it completely.
  • I like to season my batter for coating shrimp. If you are not particular about seasoning, skip it. Well seasoned shrimps are so much better than bland ones.
  • Prepare flour mix but whisking corn flour, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Prepare buttermilk but whisking in a dash of salt.
  • Soak cleaned and dry shrimp in buttermilk mix for about a minute. DO NOT marinate shrimp for longer. Shrimp will begin to cook in buttermilk if left longer.
  • Remove shrimp from buttermilk.
  • Coat it well in corn flour. Shake off excess flour.
  • Pro-Tip: use one hand to coat shrimp in liquid marinade and the other hand to coat in dry marinade. No more cakey hands!
  • Heat canola oil in a pan.
  • Deep fry shrimps in hot canoli oil for about 1 to 2 minutes on each sides or until golden brown.
  • Pro-Tip: Fry shrimp in batches, do not crowd the pan.
  • Oil should be hot to get golden brown fried shrimp. Use thermometer in case you want to be safe. Heat up oil to 375 degrees, then start frying shrimps.
  • Remove fried shrimp from oil and place it on plate lined with kitchen paper to absorb excess oil.
  • Pour to your hearts content bang bang sauce over the shrimp, toss to coat evenly. You can drizzle the sauce over bang bang shrimp if you prefer it that way.
  • If you are left with little sauce, use it for dipping.
  • Sprinkle green onions on top, little sesame seeds.
  • Serve bang bang shrimp immediately over a bed of iceberg lettuce leaf.
  • Any leftover sauce can be used for dipping.



Note : Total time to cook the dish does not include time to clean and de-vein shrimps.
