This is a perfect appetizer made with shrimp & super easy to whip up. The sauce is the main highlight of this dish- mayo, sweet chili sauce & sriracha mixed together. It’s a creamy, sweet & spicy sauce along with crispy shrimp our tastebuds will be in delight while enjoying this.

I made the healthy version by air frying the breaded shrimp, the shrimp turned out super crispy. This can be also deep-fried or baked in the oven.
