You’ve probably tried Bang Bang Shrimp or chicken before and that’s what intrigued you about this recipe. That Bang Bang sauce has a flavor you can’t resist, made with mayonnaise, chili sauce, Sriracha, and sugar. For this recipe, we’ve substituted the sugar with allulose, to make a low-sugar, low-carb version that’s just as good as the original.

Toss your tender cooked Brussels Sprouts in the sauce and you’ve got a flavor bomb of a side dish that’s so good you’ll be surprised how many sprouts you’re willing to eat, just to keep enjoying it.

What is Bang Bang Sauce?

Bang bang sauce

I’m assuming you’ve already heard of this delicious sauce, but maybe you haven’t. If you’ve never tried it before, it’s a sauce that was invented at Bonefish Grill to provide a sweet, spicy, and creamy sauce for their Bang Bang Shrimp dish.

The original sauce is a brand secret, but we’ve remade it to taste very similar to the original. We use mayonnaise, chili sauce, Sriracha, and a sugar substitute to make it a low-carb, low sugar sauce.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Ingredients for bang bang brussels sprouts

Bang Bang anything is really all about the sauce! Bang Bang Sauce has just 4 ingredients: mayo, chili sauce, Sriracha, and sweetener. You probably already have those things in your fridge, so you can make this up tonight!

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make this dish. See the recipe for the quantities.

  • Brussels sprouts – The main ingredient for this dish is Brussels sprouts. Buy ones that are all a uniform size, about the size of a golf ball, and firmly packed.
  • Mayonnaise – Best Foods is a good brand to use.
  • Sriracha – My favorite brand is the original, Huy Fong Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce.
  • Chili sauce – I use Sambal Oelek as my chili sauce, but there are many different versions you can use.
  • Sugar substitute – I use allulose because I think it’s the closest to real sugar and it dissolves well. You can use whatever sugar substitute you like best – Erythritol, monk fruit, etc.

What Sugar Substitute to Use

I use allulose as a sugar substitute. You can use Swerve, monkfruit, Erythritol or Xylitol. It’s really up to you. The reason I use allulose is because it’s a no calorie no carb sweetener like erythritol, but it doesn’t have the cooling effect. I get allulose directly through Wholesome Yum. I think you’ll really like it, especially if you also don’t like the cooling effect.

You could use a liquid sweetener, which would mix in really well, but be careful not to over do it. A little goes a long way.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I boil the Brussels Sprouts rather than frying them on the stovetop?

You can boil the brussels sprouts if that is your preferred way of cooking them. I also use the air fryer instead of the stove top to cook Brussels sprouts. It won’t matter how you cook them, though you will get more flavor from frying or air fryer.

How long to Brussels sprouts last in the fridge?

Brussels sprouts can last in the fridge for up to 2 weeks prior to cooking them. Once you’ve cooked them and tossed them with the sauce, they will only stay good in the fridge for about 4 days before they get too soggy to be enjoyable.

Is Bonefish Grill bang bang sauce keto friendly?

Unfortunately no. The original Bang Bang sauce from Bonefish Grill is not keto-friendly because they use quite a bit of sugar in it to balance out the heat. That is what is so great about this recipe! You can enjoy this delicious dish without worrying about the sugar.
