Paleo Bang Bang Shrimp

I found this recipe floating around Pinterest (what don’t I find on Pinterest?!) and thought I’d give it a shot. Sometimes we get in a chicken-rut around here. You know what I’m talking about. So we needed to break out and eat some different meat. Shrimp sounded delicious and it had been a while since I made it. I always forget about shrimp when I meal plan. I need to add it to the rotation more often.

I made this recipe a little less spicy since I was feeding it to the kids as well, and I didn’t put any sauce on the baby’s shrimp (she LOVES them plain, anyway). I have also split the sauce in half and made some more spicy than the other so we could have adult-sauce and kid-sauce at the same time. If I feel like getting fancy, I’ll make some Zucchini Noodles and serve it with those.

Also, I always double this for our family of 5 and Rob barely has enough leftover for a small lunch the next day. What can I say, we really like food.

    This was delicious! My non paleo fiancé was a serious fan as well. This is going into my “go to” recipe folder.

    I made this without measuring anything, just tossing in the ingredients…ended up being a little hotter than I like, but it was still delicious. The shrimp part itself would have been a boring if not for the zucchini noodles. So glad it was listed, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have thought to eat them together. Perfect compliment!

    Another FABULOUS recipe. You should write a cookbook!

    PS my phone won’t let me do a 5 star rating…. Or I certainly would!

    My mother just started dieting and I have been cooking for her for the last week. We tried this last night and it was awesome! Though it was pretty spicy for us, a glass of water on the side was all we needed.
    The cook time is pretty spot on unless you plan on making your own paleo mayo (which I did for the first time!–came out great, just a little time consuming.)

    This was really tasty. I was hesitant of eating basically just shrimp and mayo but I enjoyed it. I wish I could find a way to get the shrimp nice and crispy without overcooking them or making them unhealthy. Also, I wound up using probably about 1/6th of the sauce that the recipe calls for. Definitely will make again but probably quarter the sauce part.
