For the Shrimp
1poundshrimp , peeled and deveined
sliced green onions, optional, for garnish
sesame seeds, optional, for garnish
For the Bang Bang Sauce (Paleo and Whole30 version)
Break egg into a shallow, wide bowl and whisk until scrambled. Set to the side.
Stir together coconut flour, arrowroot flour, and salt in a large bowl.
One at a time, coat shrimp in the egg then dredge in flour mixture. Place on a baking sheet.
Over medium heat, melt coconut oil in a large skillet. Fry shrimp in a single layer, adding more oil as needed. You’ll likely need to cook the shrimp in batches depending on the size of your skillet.
Let the bottom of the shrimp brown before you flip (about 2-3 minutes) and cook through on the other side. Once fully cooked and crispy, remove the shrimp from the skillet and onto a towel or paper towel to absorb excess oil.
Whisk together the ingredients for the sauce in a large bowl. Carefully add fried shrimp to the ⅓ cup of the sauce and toss. Combine prepared noodles of choice with the remainder of the sauce and toss to coat evenly.
Plate the noodles and top with shrimp. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
Be sure to use Whole30 approved mayonaise, ketchup, and hot sauce.
Use zoodles, sweet potato noodles, or spaghetti squash for the noodle option.
Swap the arrowroot flour with almond flour.
Use Hearts of Palm Noodles or zoodles for the noodle option.
