Spicy Fried Shrimp /AKA: Bang Bang Shrimp

This is almost verbatim to the Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish Grill which I so dearly love!

1/2 cup mayo
1 tbls plus 1 tsp Asian chili sauce
2 tsp honey

Vegetable oil, for frying
2 Large eggs
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
Salt & pepper
1-3/4 lb small shrimp, peeled and deveined
Green onions for garnish

Make sauce, mix mayo, chili sauce, honey, 1/4 tsp salt and 1 tsls water in a large bowl; set aside.

Prepare shirmp. Heat 2-in oil in a dutch oven (or heavy pot) on med heat until deep fry thermometer registers 350 degrees. Meanwhile, whisk eggs in shallow bowl. Whisk the flour, cornstarch and 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of pepper in another shallow bowl.

Working in batches, dredge the shrimp in flour mixture, shake off excess, dip in the beaten eggs, then return to flour mixture, turning to form a thick crust. Fry the shrimp in hot oil until lightly golden (1-2 min) adjusting the heat to maintain needed oil temp. Put on paper-towel- lined plate.

Toss shrimp with the prepared sauce. Top shrimp with green onions for garnish.

**I tried this (without frying the shrimp) and it tastes JUST like the Bang Bang Shrimp. Great either fried or plain with sauce!!
