Skinny Bang Bang Sauce – a lighter version of the restaurant favorite. A great dipping sauce for veggies or seafood! 4 ingredients, 5 minutes, and just a little bit spicy.
There is a dish at the restaurant Bonefish Grill that many people love called Bang Bang Shrimp. Since this is a vegetarian blog, I’m using this dip for Bang Bang Cauliflower, but you don’t have to tell me if you use this for a seafood recipe 🙂
I have a pattern of making things “skinny” by replacing mayonnaise with greek yogurt (just like in my recent pimento cheese recipe). Adding sweet chili sauce (I got mine at Trader Joe’s) and hot sauce (extra sriracha for the win) you can’t even tell it’s a lightened up version.
The final ingredient is rice vinegar, which is optional if you don’t have it available (I tried it without at first), but I do think it gave it that little something extra.
Bang Bang Sauce Ingredients:
The recipe is very simple – 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce, 2 teaspoons sriracha and 2 teaspoons rice vinegar.
I of course added an extra teaspoon of sriracha to make it extra spicy, but depending on your preferences you can adjust it down or up as needed.
Takes 5 minutes or less depending on how fast you are at measuring things.
- 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
- 2 teaspoons sriracha or hot sauce, (add +1 extra teaspoon if you like it extra spicy)
- 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
- In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients until combined.
- Taste and add more hot sauce to make it spicier, or more yogurt to make it more mild.
- Use as dipping sauce for Bang Bang Cauliflower, Bang Bang Brussels Sprouts or other veggies as desired.
