Bang Bang Shrimp Weed Tacos

Difficulty: Normal








Equipment & Ingredients

  • Equipment
  • 1 lb jumbo shrimp raw, uncooked, peeled devined
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup corn starch
  • Ingredients
  • Sauce
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 3 tbsp Thai sweet chilli sauce
  • 3 tsp sriracha sauce
  • Taco Topping
  • 10-12 flour tacos
  • 3 cups purple cabage shredded thinly
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro fresh, chopped


  • In a small bowl, stir together Bang Bang Sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • Make the marinade by combining buttermilk, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder. Pour over peeled and deviled shrimp and stir to coat. Set aside while you start preheating your cannabis oil.
  • Remove shrimp from the marinade one at a time, letting excess marinade drip off. Dip both sides in cornstarch until fully coated, tap off the excess and arrange breaded shrimp on a platter.
  • Heat 1 1/2” of cannabis oil in a dutch oven or pot to 375˚F. Fry shrimp in 3 batches, cooking for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes until golden brown, crispy and cooked through (turn halfway if needed). Use a strainer to transfer shrimp to rest on a paper towel-lined plate for a few minutes.
  • Transfer shrimp to a bowl and drizzle half of the sauce over warm shrimp. Toss gently until shrimp are coated and rest for 10 minutes to absorb the sauce.
  • Assembling The Tacos
  • Lightly toast corn tortillas on a griddle, skillet for 30 seconds per side, or over a gas flame if you want some charring.
  • Add desired taco toppings, top with 2-3 shrimp per taco and drizzle with remaining sauce.
  • Serve with a sprinkle of cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
