Bang Bang Shrimp

The original recipe I found was to make a Shrimp and Bang Bang Sauce in a pasta dish, but since we already ate a pasta dish this week I decided to try it out over rice. I sure am glad that I did. This sauce was so easy and delicious!  My 2 year old doesn’t do well with spicy food yet, so to honor her taste pallet I left out the Sriracha. If you love spice, though, I would highly recommend adding it to your sauce.

You may look at the ingredients and notice that this recipe includes mayonnaise. I have to say, I am definitely a healthy cook, but I don’t mind adding in some higher calorie dishes sometimes. This dish is a lot less calories than the fried shrimp counterpart I’ve seen at restaurants. And only taking 30 minutes from start to table you can’t go wrong on a busy work night!
