Bangin' Good Shrimp

Our second try for a recipe from Skinny Taste definitely did not disappoint!  (This was several weeks back by the way...I'm backtracking since I've been a slacker blogger lately!)  The recipe was for Bangin' Good Shrimp which is a skinnied down version of Bonefish Grill's Bang Bang Shrimp. 

It was super, super easy and fast to make.  And it was SO yummy!  A must, must try if you enjoy sweet/spicy/fried/shrimpy goodness but aren't so in love with the sky high fat and calorie count.  Here's the exact recipe from Skinny Taste.  We ate it as our main course, but you could totally use this as an appetizer or finger food and can double or half the recipe as needed.  Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
