    I’ve recently found a new recipe for firecracker shrimp that I’ve had 3 times in the past week, I like it so much. I’ve seen “real” recipes for it, but I just improvise and eyeball measurements when I do it. Here’s how I do it: 1. Throw some frozen shrimp in a colander and run some water over them to thaw them out. 2. while they’re thawing mix approximately 3 parts mayonnaise, 2 parts Thai sweet chili sauce (I use Mae Poy), 2 parts sriracha, and a healthy shake of Hellfire Hot Sauce’s Firey Fool sauce (basically just pepper mash, you could also use dried and ground peppers or even chopped fresh chilis if you want a chunky sauce). This sauce is delicious and versatile. You want enough to cover all of the shrimp you’re making. 3. Dry off the shrimp and toss them in corn starch to coat them all throughly. 4. Dump some oil in a pan, heat it up, and toss in the shrimp. I use extra small shrimp so it only takes about 2 minutes to cook them through, and I don’t want them overdone as I’ll cook them a little more later. The corn starch works wonders to form an awesome golden crust. Cool them in batches if necessary, you don’t want to crowd the pan. When they’re done, put the shrimp on paper towels and make sure they aren’t carrying any excess oil. 5. Drain the oil from your pan and toss in the sauce we made earlier. Toss in the fried shrimp, move them around, and allow the sauce to cook a bit into the crust. Warning: this will pepper spray your kitchen. I’ve definitely stood too close during this steppes and paid the price with a hell of a coughing fit. Once the sauce has carmelized just a little onto the crust, dump it all out into a bowl, it’s done. Serve over rice, lo mein noodles, salad greens, whatever. Garnish with some chopped green onions. This stuff is delicious and you can make it insanely spicy while still flavorful and delicious.
