Bang Bang Shrimp vs Calories…….

So got this sudden urge to have some yummy Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos! But thought about the calories content and it took all the urge out of it!

Decided this wasn’t going to stop me so here is my low cal version of Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos in an edible Bowl!

For the Bowl – I used a soft low carb tortilla and baked it in the oven till it was nice and crispy! Used a muffin pan, sprayed it and placed the tortilla in gently to form a bowl.


For the coleslaw – I did a kind of Asian Coleslaw with shredded cabbage, courgettes, yellow squash, fennel and some chopped cilantro.  Squeezed some lime, drizzle of sesame oil and a sprinkle of my black sesame seeds. Salt and pepper to taste.


For the shrimp – I quickly sautéed them in a pan sprayed with olive oil until cooked through instead of dusting them in flour and deep frying them as they do in the restaurants


For the sauce – 

  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise ( I used the Light Olive oil version instead)
  • 1/4 cup Thai Style sweet chili sauce
  • Couple of dashes of Sriracha hot sauce (I put in a bit more as I like it spicy)

Instead of tossing the shrimp into the sauce, I lightly drizzled it on top of the shrimp once they are in the taco.

Put some coleslaw into the bottom of your bowl, top with some shrimp and drizzle the Sauce! How simple is that?


We went from an over 800 calories for 2 tacos, down to 400! Now is that a smart move or what!

Now time to enjoy!
