Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1/2 lb Shrimp peeled and deveined (I use the 20-30 count size)
  • 4 tbsp Canola or Vegetable Oil
  • 1 cup Cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Low Fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 4-6 drops Sriracha
  • Shredded Lettuce or Cole Slaw Mix
  • Tortilla Boats you can use regular tortillas if you want
  • 3 tbsp Tex-Mex Ranch Dressing optional


  1. Put cornstarch in a large bowl and add shrimp; toss until shrimp are covered.

  2. In a large pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Make sure the oil is hot before adding shrimp. Then, add the shrimp in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan and reducing the heat. Cook until the shrimp are done (about 1 - 1 1/2 minutes per side).

  3. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, yogurt, Thai chili sauce and Sriracha. Stir to combine.

  4. Toss shrimp in the sauce mixture. In a tortilla boat, add coleslaw mixture or lettuce. Top with shrimp and, if desired, drizzle with Tex-mex ranch dressing.
