Absolutely delicious!!! Hubby was so curious as to how I made them, because they tasted SO good, "like they are from a restaurant", he said. I followed the recipe exactly as written. This is simple to make, and comes together really quickly so you can have dinner or an appetizer in no time. I can see myself making this over and over again. The sauce is perfect. Thanks for the fabulous recipe, Mark! Read More

So sad to say we probably won't have this again as we didn't love it. I had high hopes because Honey Walnut Shrimp is a fav here and this was also a mayonnaise based sauce with a little kick. I don't think there is anything wrong with the recipe, just our taste. BTW LilSnoo's photo is amazing! Read More

I loved it and it was so easy!!! I kept to the recipe but, had to make a small adjustment due to what I had on hand. For the Thai sweet chili sauce andchile-garlic sauce I subbed my Thai Chili Garlic Paste and Guy Fieri's Asian BBQ Wok Sauce(added this for the sweetness). I will make again! Read More

This was really, really tasty. Based on other reviews, I expected it to be "like that seafood chain's spicy shrimp appetizer". It was close, but my sauce seemed to turn out a little sweeter and there seemed to be a lot more sauce than was needed. I turned the whole thing into a meal and served it over rice noodles. I definitely plan to make this again, but with some modifications to the sauce. Read More

We really liked this - it was a great appetizer. I only had large shrimp on hand, not the smaller ones that Bonefish uses, but they turned out just fine. The shrimp were VERY crispy outside, so the cornstarch is an excellent "foil" to the usual soggy mess saucing a battered & fried food produces. I didn't have the sweet chili sauce on hand, and so had to use tuong ot toi and mix it with 2 or 3 tbs honey. It really came close, but there was something missing we couldn't quite identify - maybe lime? Thanks for the recipe! Read More

this was absolutely delicious. Any size shrimp will do although I cut my jumbos in half so they would cook faster. Sauce is delicious but surprisingly there's no heat from the hot sauce. I added some toasted sesame seeds.. The green onion is key too. Yumm! Read More
