Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp My parents have 'bang bang' double date nights with their friends at Bonefish Grill, home of the famous but very fried Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer.
Wednesday when Mom and Dad called me on their way I got super jealous but remembered Skinny Taste had created a light version I just had to try! This is actually the second time I've made this, and it was much much better this time, no worries I will share my secrets!

Remove from pan and combine with the sauce coating well. (This is the important part!!! Add the cooked shrimp to a bowl and slowly add the sauce until the shrimp are covered but not smothered, you will have extra sauce)

  1. I've had this on my "to try" list for a while. I need to take the plunge now that it has such a high recommendation from you!

  2. Has anyone tried this with fat free mayo? I detest light but can tolerate fat free for some reason.

  3. Since you toss the cooked shrimp in the sauce vs. Cooking with it I think it would work just fine!
