Bang Bang Shrimp


  • 1 sliced thin green onion
  • 1/2 lb (about 12) large raw shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup gluten-free plain panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
  • Non-stick cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place three medium mixing bowls in a line. In the first bowl, add the flour. In the second, whisk together the eggs, water, black pepper and salt. In the third, mix together the bread crumbs, rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder and smoked paprika.
  3. In small batches (about 4 or 5 shrimp at a time), coat the shrimp in the flour, then dredge in the egg mixture and then coat with the panko mixture. Place on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the remaining shrimp.
  4. Lightly spray the shrimp with cooking spray. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the tops are lightly golden. Remove from the oven, gently turn the shrimp over with tongs and lightly spray with cooking spray again. Return to the oven and bake for another 5 to 8 minutes, or until crispy and lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  5. Divide the salad into 4 serving bowls with 3 shrimp and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of Bang Bang dressing. Serve immediately. Store any remaining dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
