  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into thin matchsticks
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Optional garnishes: chopped fresh parsley, sliced green onions

For the Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  7. Assemble: In a large serving dish, arrange the crispy sweet potato matchsticks and top with the crispy fried shrimp. Drizzle the spicy mayo sauce over the shrimp and sweet potatoes.
