Dip the shrimp into the egg, coating it thoroughly, then dredge it with the seasoned panko/flour mixture. Repeat until all the shrimp are coated.

Fry them until they are golden brown and form a “C” shape, indicating they are fully cooked.

Drain them on a plate lined with paper towels, then immediately coat with the Bang Bang Shrimp sauce and serve over a spring greens salad.

Drizzle additional sauce over the top as desired, or serve with ranch dressing.

Preheat the Oven to 400F

Dip the raw shrimp in the seasoned flour, THEN coat with egg, then dip into the panko/oil mixture. Place the shrimp on a baking sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper and bake 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

Immediately coat the baked crispy shrimp with bang bang sauce and serve over a spring greens salad. Drizzle additional sauce over the top as desired, or serve with ranch dressing.
