Bang Bang Shrimp – Keto, Low Carb & Gluten Free

IMG_4167

Fried shrimp coated with a classic bang bang sauce and dinner is served in 15 minutes!  The bang bang sauce in this recipe is absolutely delicious!  Once you make it, you will find yourself wanting to use it over and over again!

Bang Bang was one of my favorite dishes before I started Keto!  I made a few adjustments to my previous recipe to make it Keto friendly and it is certainly not lacking that wonderful flavor!  It’s easy to throw together and serve when you are pressed for time, and delivers a spicy kick!

Ingredients

For the Shrimp:

1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined

1/3 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)

1/2 cup coconut flour

Mild flavored Keto-friendly oil (for frying)

For the Sauce:

1/3 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup Sambal, garlic

1 tablespoon Sriracha (see note below)

1 teaspoon swerve, confectioners

1 teaspoon scallions (green parts), sliced

Note: If you want a little less spice, add only 1-2 teaspoons of Sriracha.

Preparation

Add the vinegar to the heavy cream, mix and set aside.

In a separate bowl, add the mayonnaise, Sriracha, Sambal and swerve, mix to combine.

Pour the cream and vinegar mixture over the shrimp and toss to coat.

Heat a skillet to medium high and add your favorite mild flavored oil.  Dip the shrimp in the coconut flour and fry 3-4 minutes, or until they are pink.

Coat the shrimp with the sauce, top with scallions and serve over a bed of mixed greens.

Made this last night and was a hit with the family . I made extra sauce and had it with scrambled eggs for breakfast, if you haven’t tried it please do it was delicious, only thing I did differently was not to add the sweetener I personally thought it was Great without it. Thanks for a wonderful recipe
