This is Bang Bang Shrimp (Boom Boom Shrimp) recipe off of the Big Green Egg packs some bold flavors in the mouth. The Sweet Thai Chili Sauce, Swamp Venom by Dizzy Pig and Honey really create a nice flavorful blended sauce on the Bang Bang Shrimp.

This recipe is a spin off of Boatman’s Bang Bang Shrimp which is also good but not spicy. The Swamp Venom spice really helps elevate the flavor but isn’t to hot for the average person. If you like heat, I also recommending either Sriracha or Franks Red Hot to the sauce mix.

AquaStar Boom Boom Bang Bang Shrimp

While it is always best to use fresh shrimp, we are located in Michigan and don’t have this luxury. With that being said we enjoy Aqua stars Raw Shrimp. It’s the best we can find in our area but hopefully you are somewhere by the ocean and able to get yourself some fresh shrimp!

Start out by thawing your shrimp. To do this, put the shrimp in a cullender (in which we prefer the collapsible ones for easier storage) and run cold water over them until they thaw out. Once thawed out simply remove the shell, tail and set aside on a paper towel to help absorb the moisture on the exterior of the shrimp.

If you are working with fresh shrimp, don’t forget to de-vein them.

Outside of family, I love grilling and barbequing on my Big Green Egg and working on projects around the house.
