Bang Bang Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 1/2 TBS Sriracha
  • 1 TBS rice vinegar
  • 2 TBS sugar

For shrimp

  • 2-3 TBS cornstarch
  • 1 lb medium/large pre-cooked shrimp, shells and tails removed, devained (can buy already like this), defrosted
  • 1 cup canola or vegetable oil

For tacos:

  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage blend (I like green and purple/red)
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 2 stalks green onion, chopped


Bang Bang Sauce

  1. Add all ingredients to a jar or bowl, whisk until completely combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. 

For the shrimp:

  1. Heat oil in a heavy bottom pot over medium heat until the temperature reaches 375 degrees (it should NOT be smoking). 

  2. Make sure the shrimp are dry (pat dry with paper towels if needed). Coat with cornstarch. Add shrimp carefully to the oil, fry 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. You may need to flip or stir the shrimp if they aren't fully submerged in the oil. Remove with a slotted spoon and set on a paper towel lined plate.

Assemble tacos:

  1. Add a bit of sauce to the shrimp and toss lightly to coat. 

  2. Warm corn tortilla shells (I like to let my burn a little on my gas stove). Place a bit of cabbage down on the bottom of the shell, then add shrimp, a little more cabbage, tomatoes, and green onion. Top with bang bang sauce. Serve immediately.
