Homemade PF Chang`s dynamite shrimps


This recipe doesn`t need an introduction I assume. We all know PF Chang`s iconic dynamite shrimps. You just can`t get enough from these delicious beauties. I face only one problem with them when I order in the restaurant- the portion is too small! That is why at home I cooked almost 1 kg of shrimps and made sure that there will be enough sauce to toss them in. I`m not gonna lie- it is a time consuming recipe though. But believe me it worth every second. I used small shrimps, but if you want to save some time buy big ones to speed up the cooking. In fact the recipe itself is easy. You need to prepare the batter, fry the shrimps and toss them into the sauce. The ingredients are easy to find and the recipe is waiting for you below:


     For the batter:

– 1 kg shrimps (if you use frozen let them unfroze first)

– 2 eggs

– salt flakes

– 4 tbsp corn flour

    For the sauce:

– 250 g of your favorite mayo

– 50 g of sweet Thai sauce (use your favorite to control the spiciness)

– 1 tbsp white vinegar (or rice vinegar for less bitter taste)

– add salt if needed


Mix the batter ingredients. Preheat a frying pan with vegetable oil. Dip the shrimps into the batter and fry them until golden color. In a separate bowl mix the sauce ingredients and once the shrimps are cooked mix together and gently stir. Serve sprinkled with green onion or coriander (my choice).
