Ingredients

Sauce

  • ½ Cup Miracle Whip or similar
  • 1/3 Cup Sweet Chili Sauce
  • ½ tsp Sriracha (I used 1 tsp)

For the Shrimp:

  • 1 lb. Shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 Cup Cornstarch (maybe more)

Instructions

  • Start heating 2-3 inches of oil in a large heavy pot to 375˚.
  • In a large bowl combine the Miracle Whip, Sweet Chili Sauce, ½ tsp Sriracha, 1 tsp Rice Wine Vinegar, and Salt. Taste and adjust the Sriracha to taste, it is spicy. Set aside.
  • In two small bowls put ½ the Corn Starch in one and the buttermilk in the other.
  • Drain and pat the shrimp dry.
  • Working in small batches, let the shrimp moisten in the buttermilk. Dredge in the cornstarch. Add cornstarch to bowl as needed.
  • Place in hot oil and cook until deep golden brown. (careful not to overcook the shrimp)
  • Place on paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil.
  • Repeat with remaining Shrimp.
  • Toss Shrimp in the bowl with sauce to coat and serve immediately with green onions sprinkled on top.
