I’ll admit that I LOVE all things cheese, chocolate, and fattening…but I really want to learn healthier recipes.  I’ve been trying to attempt some healthier versions of favorite recipes lately, and I’m so happy with the results. They’ve become some of our go-to recipes (Check out our Salmon with Avocado Salsa and Skinny Cheat’s Lasagna!) and it feels so much better to indulge in something you can feel good about. The weekends are usually the time Pat and I go crazy on the calories, so I’m hoping finding some skinnier recipes to love instead will help us get back on track with a healthy lifestyle. Let me tell you, its HARD to have a food blog and not eat, eat, eat.

Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp is healthy, fun, delicious, and EASY!

This healthy and spicy shrimp was an absolute success. Pat pretty much licked these skewers clean. You would never know that each skewer of 5 shrimp is only around 50 calories.  Amazing!

The secret ingredient is greek yogurt.  Chobani greek yogurt is our favorite, it is so creamy and delicious.  It can be a cooking substitute in SO many dishes, and it worked like a charm for this sauce.  This sauce would also be great on chicken, I actually doubled the recipe and am going to try it in some other things tomorrow.  It is delicious. (If you want to be a little less healthy…dip some fries in this sauce…OMG!)

Bang Bang Shrimp used to be my very favorite appetizer to get at Bonefish Grill when I lived in Jacksonville.  I always felt guilty getting it after I made the mistake of looking up the nutritional information (830 calories…yikes).  Now, I’m all for a calorie splurge once in a while, but if you can create a delicious copycat meal at home that’s actually healthy…well that’s a win, win.

I think this would make a great and romantic appetizer for a Valentine’s Day meal at home. You really can’t go wrong with grilled shrimp and this sauce. I know I’ve already said it but you have got to taste this sauce!

Thank you for including recipes for the calorie conscious people out here. It is not that I don't love everything on your site, but I have to be careful about the calories since I don't have the same metabolism that I had when I was younger. This looks great! I can't wait to try it!
April Mims
These look sooooo good! I just bought a bunch of shrimp so I'll have to give it a shot!
Melissa @ The Coupon Chronicles

This looks so great, but I have no idea what sriracha sauce is. :(

    It's a hot chili sauce usually found in the Asian section of the grocery store.

      yes, you can find sweet chili sauce either in the sauces aisle or the Asian section. I actually saw it in both. sriracha sauce would be in the Mexican section. thanks for stopping by!!

        Why would sriracha be in the Mexican section? It's Thai.
Meg @ The Housewife in Training Files
Girl, this is our favorite appetizer too! The calorie count is something we choose to ignore while treating ourselves to dinner. But I agree...its scary once you find out!! Thanks for recreating this yummy dish to help keep me on track before the wedding! :)
    becky gall hardin
    I'm lucky I couldn't find a Bonefish Grill in STL while I was wedding planning last year. would have been my downfall! ah I miss wedding planning!! so fun that you're in the midst of it!

Looks delicious but I didn't see a calorie count on the skinny version? Would be helpful.

Omg, this is amazing, I love the Bang Bang Shrimp for BFG, can't wait to try this version!
Whitney
Where do you find the sriracha sauce?? Thanks for the recipe!!
    becky gall hardin
    you can find it usually in the ketchup/dressings aisle by the hot sauce, or in the Mexican foods aisle in the sauces. its becoming a lot more popular so you shouldn't have a problem. hope you love the recipe!
Amy Grassl
Made this last night for my boyfriend and I - loved it! I was so excited to find this recipe after falling in love with Bonefish Grill's bang bang shrimp last year on spring break :)
    becky gall hardin
    so glad you loved it!!! Bonefish Grill is the BEST and we don't have one here in St. Louis so I love this recipe. Thanks for stopping by!!!
