  • 1 lb Shrimp Peeled, Deveined, Tails off.
  • 1/2 cup Bang Bang Sauce See notes
  • 1/2 cup Buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup Cornstarch
  • 1 ea Oil For Frying
  • 1 ea Chives To Garnish
  • 1 ea Sesame Seeds To Garnish


  • Gather your ingredients. Start heating your oil to 375 degrees.
  • In a plastic bag, combine the shrimp and buttermilk. Let soak for a few minutes.
  • Drain the buttermilk and add the cornstarch. Toss until the shrimp are well coated. It may be easier to do this on a cookie sheet. I found my shrimp stuck together a bit more than I would've liked in the bag. 😉
  • Fry your shrimp until browned (about 4 minutes total). I used a couple inches of oil here, so I didn't need to flip them.
  • Remove your shrimp and drain the excess oil.
  • In a bowl, add the shrimp and sauce.
  • Toss (gently) until well coated.
  • Serve & Enjoy!


  • Here is my recipe for Bang Bang Sauce.
  • This is a dish that tastes best when it is hot and it does not reheat well.  Enjoy it while it’s fresh and hot!
  • While often served alone as an appetizer, these shrimp are amazing in a wrap as well.
