  • 1 pound shrimp 30-40 peeled and deveined


  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 4-5 teaspoons chili garlic sauce such as Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Breading Mixture

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs ( I used panko)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Oil for deep-frying


  • In a medium bowl mix mayonnaise, chili sauce, honey and rice vinegar; cover and set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix flour, bread crumbs , black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt; set aside.
  • Next bread the shrimp by coating first in bread mixture, then into the buttermilk and back into the breading mixture – Place on a plate.
  • To help the breading stay on the shrimp let it rest in the fridge for about 10-20minutes
  • Heat a saucepan on medium high heat with oil or use your deep fryer to 350 degrees F.
  • When heat is hot enough deep fry shrimp 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. You may have to do so in batches
  • Mix shrimp with sauce start with 1/2 of the sauce and add more according to preference . Enjoy!


  1. You can go easy on the Chili sauce if you like spicy but not overly hot- 2 teaspoons would be a good balance. However, 4 are just perfect for me- the sweetness from the honey balances everything out.
