First, I want to wish all of my Cookies a Happy Father’s Day weekend!!! Super dads, you are appreciated! In honor of the holiday, I’m giving you a 3 for 1 tonight! That’s right, Cooks. I’m showing you how to make my version of Bonefish Grill’s amazing Bang Bang Shrimp! In order to make the Bang Bang Shrimp sauce, you need sweet chili sauce. You can absolutely buy that at the store. However, it is super easy to make at home! I’ll show you how.

You can serve these shrimp over lettuce as an appetizer like Bonefish Grill does or you can put it on bun like B. Coop does. bang-bang-shrimp-sandwichEither way, they are delicious!! MAKE THESE! Perfect for Father’s Day too!
