Bang Bang Shrimp 
1 lb. shelled and de-veined shrimp, these can be purchased frozen, but thaw before using. You will need enough cornstarch to 'bread' the shrimp, before frying.
For the sauce.
Make this sauce and then refrigerate it while you are cooking the shrimp. For the sauce, combine 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, with 1/4 cup Thai sweet chili sauce and 3-5 drops of hot chili sauce to taste. Stir until completely mixed together. Put in the fridge to keep cold, while you are cooking the shrimp.

To cook the shrimp, simply pan fry it in a little bit of oil. When it is ready, drain it on a paper towel. When the shrimp has been drained (you can absorb some of the extra grease on a paper towel. Put the shrimp in a mixing bowl and coat with the sauce you just made. Serve in taco shells or on top of lettuce.
