Yield: 4 Servings              Prep Time: 10 Mins         Cook Time: 5 Mins            Total Time: 15 Mins


Bang Bang Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 1/2 tbs Sriracha
  • 1 tbs rice vinegar
  • 2 tbs sugar

For Shrimp

  • 2-3 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 lb medium/large pre-cooked shrimp, shells and tails removed, deveined (can buy already like this), defrosted
  • 1 cup canola or vegetable oil

For Tacos

  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage blend (I like green/purple or red)
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 2 stalks green onion, chopped


Bang Bang Sauce

  • Add all ingredients to a jar or bowl, whisk until completely combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

For the Shrimp

  • Heat oil in a heavy bottom pot over medium heat until the temperature reaches 375° degrees (it should NOT be smoking).
  • Make sure the shrimp are dry (pat dry with paper towels if needed). Coat with cornstarch. Add shrimp carefully to the oil, fry 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. You may need to flip or stir the shrimp if they aren’t fully submerged in the oil. Remove with a slotted spoon and set on a paper towel-lined plate.

Assemble Tacos

  • Add a bit of sauce to the shrimp and toss lightly to coat.
  • Warm corn tortilla shells. Place a bit of cabbage down on the bottom of the shell, then add shrimp, a little more cabbage, tomatoes, and green onion. Top with bang bang sauce. Serve immediately.
