Fried Shrimp Bao Recipe with a secret ingredient

Fried Shrimp Bao Recipe with a secret ingredient

This post is sponsored by FAGE, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Fluffy little baos filled with air fried shrimp. A little crunch and sweetness, topped with a luscious garlic cilantro sauce. So many fun textures for a fun flavor party. 

My new favorite Secret Ingredient is FAGE Sour Cream 🙂 the texture is a great binder for the shrimp, helps with maximum paprika garlic dry batter coating. The FAGE Sour Cream also adds creaminess to the bright tangy sauce. Lots of cilantro, garlic and a splash of lime.

With fresh toppings, you get something different in each bite 

I hope you’ll make these and love them as much as my fam does. If you can’t find these baos at your local Chinese supermarket, you can make a great shrimp taco as well. Without an air fryer, you can just deep fry them.
