  • Author: The Commish
  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Cook Time: 10 min
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Category: Snack/Appetizer


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 3 dashes hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Oil, for frying
  • 8 lettuce leaves
  • 1 bunch green onion, chopped, for garnish


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce and hot sauce.
  2. In a shallow bowl, add cornstarch for coating. Press shrimp into the cornstarch and roll until well-coated. Shake off excess.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the oil to a temperature of 375 degrees F.
  4. Work in batches to cook the shrimp until the coating has lightly browned and the shrimp are fully cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer cooked shrimp to a paper-towel lined plate to drain.
  5. In a medium bowl, add the cooked shrimp. Pour the chili sauce over the shrimp, and gently toss to coat.
  6. Line a serving platter with the lettuce leaves. Spread the shrimp over the leaves, and garnish with green onion.
