I made Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp and I was shocked. While it’s usually deep fried and covered in a sweet chili mayo mixture, I’ve changed it up. Low calorie, packed with flavor and just as delicious.
I love shrimp. It’s packed with protein and low calorie – allowing you to volume eat while keeping you full. There are so many different ways to eat Bang Bang Shrimp and that’s why I love this recipe. You can make tacos, bowls, pasta, lettuce wraps or just by itself. My favorite is to pair it with a side of veggies and some rice.
Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Light Mayo
- Greek Yogurt
- Thai Chili Sauce
- Green Onion
- Olive Oil Spray
- Garlic Powder
If it makes 2 servings, how do I split it in 2 for macro counting?
Being precise while counting macros is important but I promise it won’t make a drastic difference when splitting your meal prep up. I always do the very best I can when I make something like this with sauce or a casserole.
Take an empty bowl and place it on your food scale. Add your Bang Bang Shrimp to the bowl and measure the total. Then, you will grab another bowl, put it on the scale and weigh half of the portion of Bang Bang Shrimp. I do this with a casserole as well – just divide the total weight by the number of servings and weigh out each serving. Of course, you will be weighing all your ingredients prior to this as well so you will have the macros.
Are you a shrimp fan like me?
If so, you need to try my Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos and my Shrimp Alfredo. The Shrimp Alfredo was from when I was keto so to make that a meal now, I’d add in some spaghetti for additional carbs and still keep the zoodles.
I have to be honest. Shrimp is the best fresh, along with this Bang Bang Shrimp recipe. I recommend making this a single serve or making it for friends or family. It’s extremely easy to make this fresh daily – it’s very quick.

Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp
If you're using frozen shrimp, the first thing you're going to want to do is thaw them. I add them to a cold bowl of water for 10-15 minutes or until completely thawed. Then, drain and pat dry.
Next, let's make the sauce. Add your greek yogurt, light mayo, thai chili sauce, green onion and sriracha to a bowl and mix well. Set aside some green onion for garnish.
Let your pan pre-heat then add a few sprays of the olive oil. While your pan is heating up, season your shrimp with salt, pepper, garlic powder and any other seasonings you like. Old Bay is a great seasoning to use on shrimp as well.
Before adding your shrimp to the pan, coat the shrimp in half of the sauce. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.I used fully cooked shrimp so I just warmed it up. If you're using raw, cook until the shrimp is pink.
After your shrimp is cooked, add it to the bowl with the remaining sauce.
Pair with some rice and veggies and extra sriracha if you need some more heat!
