Dine In: Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp


Skinny Bang Bang ShrimpThere’s a Chinese food place near my house that has a drive-thru. It also has dinner specials. Furthermore, the food is irresistible. I love it.

I can’t control how their food is cooked, with fats and oils, so I try to recreate some of their specials at home to remove some of the temptation of driving through on a Friday night and plopping on the couch, laden with heavy sauces and too much rice.

This shrimp dish is a copy of one of theirs, removing much of the fat and replacing it with flavorful and healthier options like Greek yogurt.
You can make these on a grill or in the oven.

Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp

Ingredients:
1 lb shrimp (about 50 shrimp), cooked or uncooked, shelled and deveined
10 skewer sticks (optional)
3 Tbs plain Greek yogurt
3 Tbs chopped green onion, plus more for garnish
1 1/2 Tbs sweet chili sauce
1/2-3/4 Tbs sriracha sauce

Directions:
If you’re grilling on a grill, be sure to soak wood skewers for about 30 minutes in cold water so they won’t burn easily.

Combine yogurt, onion, sweet chili sauce and sriracha in a bowl and stir well. Set aside.

Place 5 shrimp on each skewer.

If shrimp are raw, grill on each side for 5-8 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through.

If shrimp are pre-cooked, place shrimp skewers on a baking sheet and bake at 350° F for 5-10 minutes, or grill for about 2 minutes on each side over high, direct heat.

Brush each hot skewer liberally with the sauce on both sides. Serve immediately.
