Bang Bang Shrimp… Boom Boom Shrimp… what ever you call it, it’s AMAZING!

This shrimp recipe is a game changer!

 

I was so excited after a co-worker told me about this recipe by 40Aprons. This spicy shrimp recipe immediately registered as my kinda food! Since I didn’t have all the paleo-friendly ingredients on hand, I decided to make my own version with what I did have in my pantry. The final product was a truly scrumptious shrimp dish that makes a fun appetizer or even a quick weeknight dinner. One of my kids kept calling it “Boom Boom Shrimp” so I decided my version should pay homage to both versions.
