Bangin’ Good Shrimp [Copycat Recipe]

edit2

Mmmm, Bonefish Grill.  Have you ever been before?  And if so, have you ever tried their Bang Bang Shrimp?  They are lifechangingly good.  Only problem?  I live in Canada and we don’t have Bonefish Grill here.  So when I had a craving for their famous shrimp, I had to get creative.  And I’m SO happy to report that I no longer have to travel to the U.S.A. to get my fix, because I found the perfect copycat recipe!

Let me introduce you to Skinnytaste.com, a site where you can find some pretty incredible recipes that are skinny’d up for guilt-free indulging.  Honestly, set aside some time and explore this site.  You will be inspired – and starving – by the end of it 🙂

Who knew that something so small could bring so much pleasure?!  These Bangin’ Good Shrimp taste simply sinful, but are only 5 Weight Watcher Points+ per serving!!

Here’s what you will need to make your new favourite recipe …
