Bang Bang Cauliflower

Last night something amazing happened in our house. What was it? Bang Bang Cauliflower! Thats right. I found the recipe on Pinterest and have been jonesing for them ever since I saw the photo. I mean come on! Any food you eat with chop sticks can't be half bad. Although I am not a huge fan of shrimp I often partake in one or two bang bang shrimp when we go to Bonefish Grill. Its just so fun.

Something I have always wondered though, if I put up with the shrimp for the sake of the yummy crust and sauce why don't I just put the crust or sauce on something I do like. Well - someone had already come up with that idea and put it into this awesome recipe that I am about to bestow upon you. Be warned, this may cause a habit forming addiction.

This can be an appetizer but we enjoyed it as our meal. While I was cooking these up Bryan looked at me and said "is that all you're cooking or are we going to eat something else too?" I said "only planning these, dear, feel free to cook something else". He did, and he didn't touch it. He was quickly filled on the Bang Bangs Cauliflower.
