Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp

Joel’s new favorite meal…and it’s a light version! It’s a miracle. As I’ve said before, I don’t really like seafood but this shrimp was to die for. The batter was light and crispy so that we were actually able to taste the shrimp and it was so refreshing over the lettuce.

This recipe is a copycat of Bang Bang Shrimp from Bonefish Grill. I have never eaten there as we don’t have one around these parts so I can’t really compare it to the original but I’m telling you, it was sooo good. The original recipe is battered and deep fried while this is lightly coated with cornstarch and cooked in a small amount of oil.

It was Joel’s absolute favorite new recipe that I have made in quite awhile. He actually hasn’t stopped talking about it and I made this about 2 weeks ago. I always think about changing out the seafood for chicken since that is what I prefer and I think chicken would be really great prepared this way too.

The calories, fat, protein and much more are all included with the recipe which is really great. It is from one of my new finds, Skinny Taste. There are so many great looking dishes that I am sure to try out soon.
