Bonefish Grill is one of my favorite places to eat. It is a place we go for “special” date nights. Every time we go, the hubs and I always get at least one appetizer of Bang Bang Shrimp—“crispy shrimp, tossed in a creamy, spicy sauce”.
In Montgomery, we lived rather close to the restaurant. Now, too far to go frequently. So, I had to come up with my own version of the recipe.
Copycat Bang Bang Shrimp Recipe
