For this month’s Pinterest Challenge I finally decided to make Carrie with Children’s Bang Bang Shrimp recipe.

My husband and I have never been to Bonefish Grill but we’ve heard how awesome their Bang Bang Shrimp is so I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for awhile now.

The only problem – I’ve never fried anything before and I was afraid I would totally ruin the recipe.

So I headed over to my neighbor’s house and asked my neighbor’s Charles and Janett to cook the shrimp for us.  Yep, that’s how it works on my fabulous street.  I have the best neighbors ever!!  Then we invited the other neighbors over to try this AWESOME shrimp.

Yes. when I say awesome, I mean AWESOME!  I would highly recommend making Bang Bang Shrimp.  I promise it will be a huge hit.  We (ok my neighbor because I’m still too nervous to fry anything)  also made chicken tenders and coated them with the same sauce.  And I think I might like that even better than the shrimp
