Keto Bang Bang Shrimp
This easy recipe for keto bang bang shrimp is the best low carb way to enjoy this restaurant copycat from Bonefish Grill. Shrimp is “breaded” in a low carb mixture and can be air fried, pan fried or baked in the oven. It’s then topped with a spicy bang bang sauce that you’ll want to put on everything!
When Bonefish Grill first opened up in my hometown, we were excited to try the infamous bang bang shrimp that became super popular in such a short amount of time.
Turns out it’s really delicious!
💭Is Bang Bang Shrimp Keto?
The bang bang shrimp you will find at restaurants is not keto, however this recipe was made for those who want to enjoy a tasty keto shrimp dish.
💭Is Bang Bang Sauce The Same As Boom Boom Sauce?
The sauce has bang bang in it in order to portray the slightly spicy kick from the thai chili sauce or sriracha that gets mixed in.
Boom Boom sauce was popularized by Sheetz gas stations and convenience stores which tastes somewhat similar but is made with less clean ingredients like soybean oil.
It’s easy to make homemade Bang Bang sauce for a lot cheaper and a bit more healthy for you!

This was AMAZING!! Thank you for the great recipe!!
You’re welcome! Glad you enjoyed it! -Krista (Team Thyme & JOY)
This was great! I’m trying to cook a bit healthier and this was just perfect! I did switch the sriracha with Thai sweet chili so it couldn’t be spicy.
That sounds delicious. I love sweet chili sauce! So glad you enjoyed it. Thanks, Eliana! -Krista (Team Thyme & JOY)
I was unable to find the oven instructions for this dish. I do not like frying foods, at all! Can someone please give me an idea? Oven temp and time? Breaded shrimp is a tricky oven dish and I hope so one has done this in the oven! Thanks!
Hi, Sherry! My best bet would be baking the shrimp on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet for 10 to 12 minutes, flipping halfway through. -Krista (Team Thyme & JOY)
Wow! Great recipe!! Couldn’t have been better! I cleaned about 30 shrimp, and doubled the recipe for the breading and the sauce. It was perfect!
That’s great, Deanna! We appreciate the awesome review -thank you! -Krista (Team Thyme & JOY)
I made 4lbs of shrimp last night because my family of 5 LOVES this recipe!! So, so, good. It did take awhile to bread it all, but there was not one complaint at how long it was taking because everyone was so excited for the end result!! Haha! My husband said the breading was “super legit, never would I have known this is keto!” And that bang bang sauce?! Get outta here! Delish! Served the shrimp with cauliflower fried rice. Thank you, I will be making this again.
This recipe is the best!! We can finally enjoy low carb bang bang shrimp! I served it with the asian chopped salad and my family rated it 10/10!! Thank you for sharing!
