  • 1 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 egg whisked well
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pepper to taste
  • coconut or avocado oil for frying
  • sliced green onions green part only, for garnish, optional

Bang Bang Sauce


  • Stir together all sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • Whisk together coconut flour, arrowroot powder, salt, and pepper in a wide bowl. Dip shrimp in eggs then dredge in flour. Shake off excess and place on a baking sheet or plate. Repeat with all shrimp.
  • Heat a thin layer of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, fry shrimp, making sure not to crowd. Wait until the bottom side is nicely browned before flipping, then flip and cook through on the other side. Shrimp should be beautifully browned and crispy. Remove from skillet with a slotted spoon and repeat until all shrimp are fried.
  • In a large bowl, toss shrimp with half of the sauce. Add more sauce to taste and toss. Serve with remaining sauce (if you have any). Top with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
