Absolutely delicious!!! Hubby was so curious as to how I made them, because they tasted SO good, "like they are from a restaurant", he said. I followed the recipe exactly as written. This is simple to make, and comes together really quickly so you can have dinner or an appetizer in no time. I can see myself making this over and over again. The sauce is perfect. Thanks for the fabulous recipe, Mark!

So sad to say we probably won't have this again as we didn't love it. I had high hopes because Honey Walnut Shrimp is a fav here and this was also a mayonnaise based sauce with a little kick. I don't think there is anything wrong with the recipe, just our taste. BTW LilSnoo's photo is amazing!

Absolutely Love It!! Tastes like Tony Roma's Kickin Shrimp! :) Added some shredded carrots to the salad.

Didn't finish my review! We may try not to lay the sauce on so thick, or try cooking the sauce into it a bit more after putting it on. Either way the taste and texture were still perfect!

We really liked this - it was a great appetizer. I only had large shrimp on hand, not the smaller ones that Bonefish uses, but they turned out just fine. The shrimp were VERY crispy outside, so the cornstarch is an excellent "foil" to the usual soggy mess saucing a battered & fried food produces. I didn't have the sweet chili sauce on hand, and so had to use tuong ot toi and mix it with 2 or 3 tbs honey. It really came close, but there was something missing we couldn't quite identify - maybe lime? Thanks for the recipe!

I only used about 1/4cup of the sauce to coat the shrimp. The second time I made it I reduced the amount of mayo but kept the others the same and was still good spicier but we liked it that way
