I’ll admit I don’t get fancy when I eat shrimp. I usually like it with butter and a little garlic, and that is plenty. However, whenever we eat at Bonefish Grill, my whole family goes crazy for their Bang Bang Shrimp dish. It is so zesty and delicious that I eat the whole platter! Since we don’t live too close to the restaurant I’ve begun making my own copycat Bonefish Grill Bang Bang Shrimp recipe. It is lighter and a little less salty, but still tastes amazing.
