Equipment

Ingredients

For the Shrimp

For the Sauce

Instructions

  • For the sauce: In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, Thai sweet chili sauce, sriracha sauce and garlic.  
  • For the shrimp: In a medium bowl or a plastic ziptop bag, toss together the shrimp, cornstarch and salt until the shrimp is coated with the cornstarch or rice flour.
  • Place the shrimp in the air fryer basket, trying to keep them in as flat a layer as possible. You may want to use a rack, and place half the shrimp in the basket and the other half on the rack. 
  • Spray well with additional oil. 
  • Set the air fryer to 330F and cook for 10 minutes, tossing halfway through and spraying with additional oil. 
  • Remove the shrimp and toss into the bowl with the half sauce. Set the other half of the sauce aside to serve as a dipping sauce.
  • Put the shrimp back into the air fryer basket. Set the air fryer to 330F for 4-5 minutes until the sauce has formed a glaze. Serve with the sauce. 

Notes

  • Serve as soon as they are ready as they will not keep terribly well once you dip them in the sauce
  • You can make bang bang shrimp tacos but adding a little shredded cabbage, tucking these into tortillas, and drizzling some more sauce over the top
  • You can use the same technique for bang bang chicken. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces, and proceed as directed for the shrimp. 
  • Make double the sauce as it will keep in the fridge for at least a week.
