Just so we're all clear, this is not a "healthy" or necessarily "clean" dish. I do try to use the best ingredients available, but this is a weekend meal for us. During the week I try to eat super clean, lift heavy weights, drink lots of water, etc etc. Therefore on the weekends I let myself have some allowances; wine, fried shrimp, pancakes, etc. Everything in moderation and with a plan friends! Also I'm going to share my weekly clean eating plan tomorrow so lookout for that.
But for TODAY we have fried shrimp in a creamy sweet & spicy sauce that is to-die-for. Make this. ASAP! Trust me.
1 lb (ish could be a lil more or less) peeled & deveined uncooked shrimp (or chicken, diced)
1- 1 1/2 cups cornstarch
Extra virgin olive oil (enough to fill a skillet, about an inch deep)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
1 tbsp (more or less, depending on how spicy you want your dish!) Sriracha chili sauce
Green onions to garnish
Step 1: heat olive oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Make a battering station for the shrimp. Whisk the eggs with about 1/4 c water, that will be station 1. Station 2 is the corn starch followed by the skillet.
Step 2: When the oil is hot & ready (you can check by dropping a wood spoon in, the oil around the spoon will bubble) drop the shrimp pieces individually into the egg mixture, then the corn starch to coat, then into the oil.
Step 4: while you are frying up the shrimp you can go ahead and make the sauce. In a small bowl combine the mayo, sweet chili sauce, & Sriracha, whisk together until smooth. You can add more or less Sriracha to your preference. We like it spicy, but not overly so! I use this organic mayonnaise, it's not perfect but it's better than most on the grocery shelf. Read your labels people!
