Stored 281K times and counting, Bang Bang cauliflower from Kirbie's Cravings features panko-coated florets that are fried until crunchy and then coated in a spicy-sweet sauce. Talk about the easiest way to persuade yourself to eat more cruciferous vegetables.At the first thought we think her recipe is a riff on the Bang Bang Shrimp of Bonefish Grill. The chain restaurant is known for its special appetizer with panko-coated shrimps, served with a chili-mayo dipping sauce. The beloved app has inspired dozens of bloggers to come up with their own copycat versions, and Kirbie's Cravings blogger Jennifer Lee has developed a decent vegetarian version. In an e-mail, Lee told Brit + Co, "The dish is inspired by my Chinese-American background, I love creating American twists on Chinese dishes." Why this is so popular, Lee added: " It is a unique way to eat cauliflower (breaded and fried to crunchy) and a healthier way to enjoy a bang-bang sauce with sauce without sacrificing taste on taste or taste. "Baking the florets until they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The creamy, spicy-sweet sauce lets you dive back into the bowl for more – our tasters have fought for the last flowers! We only made one change in the recipe and that is to add 1 teaspoon kosher salt to the egg to spice up the cauliflower. You can also garnish the party with a dash of cayenne pepper to increase the heat. If OTT candy is not your jam, you can always reduce the amount of honey in the sauce or omit it altogether. This recipe makes a lot of sauce, so do not throw them away if you have leftovers. Lee tells her readers: "I use [the sauce] in many recipes for dipping chicken, seafood, vegetables, just about anything. "
