This Bang Bang Shrimp Dip is a tasty take on the wildly popular appetizer from bonefish grill. I’ve taken all the sweet and spicy flavors of that magical sauce and transformed it into a dip that everyone will go crazy for.

Make this Bang Bang Shrimp Dip for the Big Game or your next family gathering.

I think it’s safe to say that everyone loves dips. Every time I’m at a party or a cookout I always bring a dip.  There are so many varieties of dips, hot, cold, creamy, cheesy.

Some have meat, some are vegetarian. You really can’t go wrong as long as the dip is packed with flavor and you’ve got a variety of things to dunk alongside your dip.

This Bang Bang Shrimp Dip is a new recipe I came up with but it was already a big hit with my friends and family.  The balance of sweet and spicy along with big hunks of gulf shrimp make it hard to walk away from the table once you take a bite.

Should you serve the dip hot or cold?

I’m torn between which version I liked better. Both the hot and cold versions of this dip were delicious but I think the flavors really shine when the dip is served chilled or at room temperature.

The recipe below is meant to be served chilled. If you prefer making this hot only use 1 tbsp of mayonnaise instead of a ¼ cup. Then heat in the oven at 350 degrees F. For about 15-20 minutes until warm.

What to Serve with Bang Bang Shrimp Dip.

The possibilities of what to serve along side the Bang Bang Shrimp Dip are endless. It really comes down to knowing what you and your guests will enjoy.

You can serve all veggies like: celery, peppers, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower and cucumbers. Or maybe you want the crunch of  tortilla chips, pretzel sticks or even pork rinds.

On this occasion I was short on fresh veggies so I served the dip with Club Crackers, Restaurant Style Tortillas and Crispy Seaweed Chips.

The Seaweed chips are a product I found at Costco and really fell in love with. If you are a fan of sushi you will love these crisps and they’re perfect for scooping.

Not all Thai Chili Sauce are the Same.

It sounds strange but I’m very picky about which Sweet Thai Chili Sauce I use.

Back in my days as a restaurant chef we served a similar version of Bang Bang Shrimp Except we called them Bada Bing Shrimp.

If you ever visit any of the Ropewalk locations they still have them on the menu. When we made our version of the sauce I only used one brand of Thai Chili Sauce Mae Ploy.

It’s by far the best brand and It’s fantastic with anything you pour it on. If you want to make a batch of my version of Bada Bing Sauce I’ll post it below for you.

Bada Bing Sauce

  • ⅔ cup Mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup Mae Ploy Sweet Thai Chili sauce
  • 2 tbsp Sambal Oelek
  • 1 tbsp rice wine Vinegar
