I have never tried Bang Bang Shrimp or even been to a Bonefish Grill establishment. Actually, I bet they don't even have one near me. For goodness sakes, we don't even have a TGIFriday's! They have forever left Washington state, but I'm constantly seeing commercials... So, I'm thinking I either need to go to Canada or Oregon to eat it.
So, I've seen bang bang shrimp recipes all over Pinterest and Foodgawker. There's the unhealthy version and Gina's healthy take on it. Of course I decided to go the healthy route and to be honest, I didn't care for this at all. Maybe I wasn't in the mood for shrimp that day or maybe because I used Japanese mayo and Mae Ploy Sweet Chili Sauce instead. Whatever it was, my tongue did not enjoy it. Maybe you'll have better luck?

12 large raw shrimp, shelled and deveined

Coat shrimp with cornstarch, pinch of salt & pepper, mixing well with your chopsticks (or hands).
Heat a large skillet or wok on high heat, when hot add oil. When oil is hot add the shrimp to hot pan and cook tossing a few times until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove from pan and combine with the sauce coating well.
