Bang Bang Shrimp can be healthy!

This Bang Bang Shrimp Recipe is a Bonefish Grill Copycat Recipe but is grilled and not fried, and we have lightened up the sauce even more by using greek yogurt. You get all the flavor but non of the fat, my kind of Healthy recipe!

Bang Bang Shrimp…have you tried it? 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. This Bang Bang Shrimp recipe is our weeknight go-to!

This Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp Recipe 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. The Bang Bang Sauce is out of this world! Greek Yogurt 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!)

How many calories are in this Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp?

Each skewer of 4-5 shrimp is under 50 calories according to My Fitness Pal. We usually eat 2-3 skewers per person. Is this heaven? Bonefish Grill reports that their fried bang bang shrimp is over 800 calories so I’ll count this as a win!!

What ingredients are in bang bang sauce?

Typically it is made with mayo, sweet chili sauce, hot sauce, and lots of spices. We have substituted greek yogurt for the mayo, saving a TON of calories. You’ll never notice the difference (or might I say you’ll like this version better!)

How spicy is this copycat bang bang shrimp?

Not very hot. It’s got a mild spice with a bit of a bite. If you prefer spicier you can add in some red pepper flakes or go with a more spicy hot sauce. I like that kids and adults can both enjoy this version.

Making your favorite appetizers at home, like this Bang Bang Shrimp, can let you control how things are prepared.

You can make healthy substitutions while not sacrificing flavor. Shrimp is so easy to cook, this recipe is a winner!

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 healthy bang bang shrimp 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
That looks FANTASTIC! I am totally going to try this, and pinning, definitely a keeper!
Patricia Bassett
This looks so great, but I have no idea what sriracha sauce is. :(
    Creative Preschool Resources
    It's a hot chili sauce usually found in the Asian section of the grocery store.
      becky gall hardin
      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!!
        Karol
        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!
Nina

    becky gall hardin

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