Dynamite Shrimps

If you’ve travelled to Dubai or the States and tried P.F Changs you might have tasted their famous dynamite shrimp starter….succulent shrimp dunked in a siracha mayo sauce (sooo mouthwatering!!) 😍😍 I was having craving for these recently and decided to create the PF Changs inspired dynamite shrimp starter 🍤

This recipe has been highly anticipated on the blog and I’ve finally gotten round to sitting down and writing it up for you all! (I think we’ve all established I’m a bit lazy when it comes to posting blogs for you guys…a bit ironic I know🙈 but better late then never hey) Anyway you can find the recipe down below

P.S – Make a lot you’ll be asking for seconds!! I’ve made this a couple times and you can see different layouts below
