Just a Bit Spicy Shrimp Mayonnaise with Sweet Chili Sauce

Shrimp with mayonnaise made using sweet chili sauce - rich yet just a bit spicy. The seasoning is ultra-simple! Sweet, mild and so good.

Salt and pepper
To taste
Sweet chilli sauce
3 tablespoons

Steps

1. Peel and de-vein the shrimp. Sprinkle sake, salt, and pepper.
2. Combine the sweet chili sauce, mayonnaise, and milk in a bowl and mix well.
3. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. Coat with katakuriko and shake off any excess. Deep fry in 355°F/180°C oil, and drain well.
4. Add the fried shrimp to the bowl from Step 2 and mix well. Done!
5. This is the Thai sweet chili sauce I used.
6. It's mild, rich, just a bit spicy, and delicious! It's not that spicy so my kids could eat it. (They're 5 and 6 years old.)
