Crispy spicy shrimp bowls perfect for a 4th of July celebration!


    For the Shrimp:
  • 24 shrimp
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp each of salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp milk
  • About 1 cup flaming hot Cheetos crumbs
  • For the Sauce:
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp sriracha (or more, if you love spice!)
  • 2-4 Tablespoons sweet chili sauce (to taste depending on how sweet you like the sauce. Sugar can also be substituted if you don’t have sweet chili sauce – start with 1 tsp, taste, and work your way up!)
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • For the Bowls:
  • 4 cups cooked white or brown rice
  • Assorted chopped vegetables (I recommend scallions, cucumbers, carrots, shredded cabbage, and tomatoes)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Prep shrimp coating: Mix flour with salt and pepper and place on a plate. Scramble eggs with milk and place in shallow bowl. Place flaming hot Cheetos crumbs on a plate.
  3. Make shrimp: coat each shrimp with the flour mixture, followed by the egg mixture, followed by the Cheetos crumbs. Bake shrimp at 400 degrees F on parchment lined baking sheet for 8 minutes.
  4. Make the Sauce: combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl
  5. Assemble: Portion out rice into bowls. Top with assorted vegetables, firecracker shrimp, and special sauce. Enjoy!
