This bang bang shrimp tacos recipe by Natashas Kitchen is the best-tasting seafood dish I have ever tried. The breaded shrimps are super crispy and flavorful. That doesn’t end there – they are wrapped in a warm corn tortilla and drizzled with homemade chili mayo sauce, then topped with sliced tomatoes, cabbage, and cilantro for a perfect dinner.



  • 1 lb of large shrimp (peeled, deveined, and tails removed)
  • 1/2 cup of buttermilk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder

Step 1:

Make the sauce. Get a small bowl and add the mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, and sriracha hot sauce. Stir everything well, then set aside.

Step 2:

Make the marinade. In a different bowl, combine buttermilk, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Add the prepared shrimp and stir until well-coated. Set aside.

Step 3:

Remove the shrimp from the marinade one at a time, letting the excess drip, then coat both sides with cornstarch. Tap off excess and arrange it on a platter.

Step 4:

Fill the Dutch oven or pot with about 1 1/2″ of oil and heat at 375F. Fry the shrimp in 3 batches. Cook for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Once cooked through, use a strainer to remove the shrimp and transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate for a few minutes.

Step 5:

Put the shrimp in a bowl and drizzle half of the sauce. Gently toss until everything is well coated, then let it rest for 10 minutes to absorb the sauce.

Step 6:

Toast the corn tortillas on a griddle. Heat 30 seconds per side or over a gas flame for some charring.

Step 7:

Add desired taco toppings, top with 2 to 3 shrimp per taco, and drizzle with remaining sauce. Serve with a sprinkle of cilantro then squeeze fresh lime juice.
