This is my take on a popular dish from a restaurant chain. My version is made in an air fryer instead of being deep-fried. The end result was perfectly crispy sweet and spicy shrimp.
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- ¼ cup sweet chili sauce
- 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 head loose leaf lettuce
- 2 green onions, chopped, or to taste (Optional)
Set an air fryer for 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Mix mayonnaise, chili sauce, and sriracha sauce in a bowl until smooth. Reserve some bang bang sauce in a separate bowl for dipping, if desired.
Place flour on a plate. Place panko on a separate plate.
Coat shrimp first with flour, followed by mayonnaise mixture, then panko. Place coated shrimp on a baking sheet.
Place shrimp in the air fryer basket without overcrowding.
Cook for 12 minutes. Repeat with remaining shrimp.
Serve in lettuce wraps garnished with green onions.
