Firecracker Shrimp with Spicy Mayo

The Best Firecracker Shrimp

This Firecracker Shrimp Recipe is a very fast and simple way to just knock out a great appetizer that everyone can enjoy.  There are many different ways you can make these and as you can see I’ve chosen the easiest way to demonstrate by practicality and availability so that everyone can enjoy these little poppers.  The more authentic version requires Spring Roll Wrappers which aren’t often, if at all, stocked in regular grocery stores.  That is why I’ve chosen the Wonton Wrapper because they’re made more readily available.  To make these Firecracker Shrimp you only need a few ingredients, which I’ll list below.

Other Firecracker Shrimp Recipes

The more commonly known Firecracker Shrimp recipe is different than this appetizer and it is normally served as a side or main dish.  Some restaurants even have it listed on their menu under a different name; Bang Bang Shrimp.  But they are, both, one in the same and it doesn’t reference the look of the firecracker as much as it does the spiciness of the dish.  It’s generally made with pre-fried, battered shrimp with Red Chili’s and a sweet and spicy sauce.  And, lucky for you, I just so happen to have the number one fried shrimp recipe on YouTube, so all you have to do is combine that recipe with the sauce and you’ll be on your way.  Click Here for that recipe!

 

Firecracker Shrimp Ingredients:

1 pkg Wonton Wrappers
2 lbs Medium or Large Shrimp
1/4 cup Water for Wrappers
Oil for Frying

Spicy Mayo Sauce

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp Sriracha

Peal and de-vain Shrimp but leave the tails attached.  Roll each Shrimp in one Wonton Wrapper, leaving the tail out, one half roll, then fold the bottom of the wrapper over the end of the shrimp like a burrito and roll the Wrapper and Shrimp together as one until you reach the furthest edge and stop.  Dab the edge with water and seal by pressing firmly.  Fry at 350 degrees for 4 minutes or until golden brown.  Mix the two ingredients together for Spicy Mayo, adjust for taste and enjoy your Firecracker Shrimp.
