P.F. Chang's Dynamite Shrimp (Copy cat Recipe)




                   Whenever we have a dish from the restaurant which we all loved, and long to have again, I try to find its recipe from the web and try to perfect it with my own trials and errors. That way, you could have it anytime, whenever you crave for it, without having to spend a fortune on it. So copycat recipes are always in demand and they tend to be on the much explored list.



                  P.F. Chang's China Bistro is a popular American Chinese restaurant chain which has its branches in other countries too. Though I like Indo Chinese dishes more than American Chinese,one of the dishes we really liked from P.F.Chang's in Kuwait, is the delicious appetiser, 'Dynamite Shrimp'. But it actually costs around 150 dollars to have half a dozen of shrimp coated in that delicious, creamy, tangy and zesty sauce from the restaurant. It is better to make it at home, if you can help it.


                    That set me in search for a perfect recipe, but most of the recipes I tried from the web, turned out to be too sour or too bland.So I set forth to do experiments of my own with various ingredients and I found out a recipe which was quite similar to the original one.
   Let me share it here...
Am still working on perfecting the recipe. If I come up with a more exact one I shall upload it InshaAllah.. :) Till then, Enjoy cooking!


Wanna see the Recipe..?
Go ahead..

P.F Chang's Dynamite Shrimp Copy cat Recipe:

    1. I have never made it with chicken.. So I cannot tell.
      But I think it would come out nice with chicken breasts too.. Only thing is u would have to use really thin strips of it or will not get cooked

    1. @ Sen Putra, If you find the sauce too runny, try adding thick corn syrup instead of mayonnaise. All other ingredients same. Mix everything well and toss in the fried shrimps. Good Luck!

  26. I believe what gives the sauce heat is wasabi and not chilli powder and/or hot sauce.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I had this at PF Chang's last night for the first time, so of course I wanted it tonight at home!!! This recipe is perfect as far as I can tell. I did add a bit more mayo to make the sauce thicker. I did make more batter because it seemed a little small. Absolutely excellent recipe. It's right on, and I'm particular. Only recommendation is to use small shrimp and don't use too much. It's a rich dish. Less is more. Awesome.

  31. I am curious about trying out this recipe! Did you use precooked shrimp?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I tried it but it was a mess. ��. First of all it was too chilly that it messed up the taste. I replaced 5 tbsp of hot sauce with 15 tsp. Second the look of the shrimps was not appealing. Maybe i didn't dry them well.

    ReplyDelete
  33. 1 tbsp=2 tsp so seems like you added 5 tspns more than you should have which explains why it became too spicy

    ReplyDelete
