This boom boom sauce is insanely soft, creamy, sweet and one of my favorite sauce recipes. There is also a bit of spice but just enough to make you want more.

Boom Boom Shrimp Sauce

The reason why this boom boom sauce is delicious is that it packs so different flavors that hit you all at once. There’s a little bit of spice, sweet and savory, all at the same time.

It’s thick – but not like mayonnaise. The ingredients just work all together perfectly fine.

Plus this sauce is super easy to make and only takes 10 minutes!

This dipping sauce elevates the flavor of so many dishes, from Marfar Chicken, crispy Mahi Mahi to Wingstop Copycat Fries – and of course – fried seafood such as fried boom boom shrimp.

Although you can buy it already prepared from the store, nothing beats the flavors of this homemade sauce!

Tips and Tricks

  • For an extra-tangy sauce, add a squeeze of lemon juice. You can also add a dash of lime juice for a flavor closest to the original version.

  • Adjust the heat level. This mayonnaise-based dipping sauce recipe includes only 2 teaspoons of hot sauce, counterbalanced by the soft mayo and sweet chili sauce. Don’t hesitate to adjust and add more hot sauce for a spicy kick according to your taste buds.

  • Experiment with different flavors. For a stronger nutty flavor, add 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil to this great dipping sauce.

  • Use as marinade. This fun sauce is an excellent marinade base for meats or vegetables. Simply brush the food with the sauce and let marinate for at least one hour in the fridge before cooking.

  • Use it as a burger sauce or salad dressing. An excellent way to enjoy this creamy sauce is to dress it with greens. Or to insert between two layers of your favorite burger.
  • Storage Instructions

    • In The Fridge: This sauce will last for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator.

    • Don’t Freeze: Boom Boom sauce doesn’t freeze well. The USDA recommends against freezing mayonnaise-based sauces because the mayo separates thawed. Then the sauce looks curdled.
