Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Cheat with a BANG!

Okay, so I feel ashamed just POSTING this recipe on this blog because this is SO FAR from Michi's Ladder or P90X's gotta be a sin.........BUT...........we all know we have cheat days every now and again and IF you're gonna cheat, you want it to be something that is VERY WORTH IT right? you go.
That is the ONLY reason I share this recipe. For a special cheat day. Do not...I repeat DO NOT make this recipe more than once every 4 months. Understood? :) oh and don't hog it...share some with your family! :)

Bang Bang Shrimp from Bonefish Grill manager

1 bag of Baby Greens or Spring Mix

16-18 Medium Shrimp, cleaned & put aside

Spicy Sauce:

1/2 C mayo

4 tsp Chili Garlic Sauce (Sambal)

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp rice vinegar

Mix well & set aside

1 beaten egg

1 C milk

Mix well & put in shallow bowl

3/4 C flour

1/2 C Panko crumbs

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 ground sage

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp dried basil

Mix well & put in a shallow bowl

Dip Shrimp in breading mix, then in egg/milk mix & back in breading mix....

Put on a tray & refrigerate for 20 min.....

Heat 6-10 Cup's of Oil...Fry shrimp a few at a time until golden.....Drain on paper towels.When all shrimp are fried, put them in a large bowl.....Spoon 1/4 to 1/3 of the sauce on shrimp & toss to coat....

Stack on baby greens.....I put the extra sauce on the side...


Okay.......that's the recipe. Now, let me tell you some changes I made. First of all, I couldn't find that exact chili garlic I just bought a brand called 'Roland' which was next to the oriental foods in the grocery store. (Walmart didn't carry ANY kind of I had to go to Reasors)

Also, I didn't have the ground sage and I didn't want to pay $3.19 to buy some just to use 1/2 of a tsp so I just didn't use any. I also didn't have onion powder...but I did have onion I substituted that.

The shrimp I bought were raw, peeled, tail off and came 50 to a bag. I was able to bread ALL 50 of them with the mixtures from above!!! And...I only used that one bowl of sauce mix for all 50 (which means they were VERY lightly coated in sauce).

Other than that, I stuck to the recipe. It was a little time consuming--dipping each individual shrimp into the flour mixture, then the egg, then the flour....but it really was THAT GOOD that I will do it again sometime (probably if we are having company or something).
