One thing I love about making shrimp is how quickly it cooks. Add on a few extra minutes to mix up the sauce in this Sweet & Spicy Shrimp recipe, and you’ve got a tasty dinner on the table in 15 minutes or less.
Copycat Bang Bang Shrimp
This recipe could be considered a better-for-you (and not as spicy) version of Bang Bang Shrimp (which is deep-fried), and my child who “thinks” she doesn’t like shrimp was even willing to try it. Hey, with all the tasty stuff this shrimp is coated in you might just forget what you’re biting into on the inside!
We tried this tonight and it was so good! My whole family loved it! It came together much quicker than I anticipated, too!
How Long Can Shrimp Marinate in Buttermilk?
While I made this recipe so that you can quickly pull it together for dinner, you can leave it marinating in the fridge for up to 3 or 4 hours.
Can You Double Fry Shrimp?
If you’d like them to be extra crispy, readers have suggested double coating them. Do one layer of buttermilk, then roll in flour, then back in the buttermilk, and one more layer of flour.
What to Serve with Sweet & Spicy Shrimp
Serve this Sweet & Spicy Shrimp with a green veggie, or even some slaw, and brown rice (we love those quick-cooking packets), and your quick and easy dinner is done!
