Saucy Shrimp (Bonefish Grill copycat)


Meet Saucy Shrimp. My favorite appetizer. It just recently entered my life when I first tried it a Bonefish Grill a few months ago. I immediately decided to make a copycat version at home.

Saucy Shrimp- Bonefish Grill copycat. One of my favorite appetizers!

This shrimp dish has SO MUCH flavor with a little Mediterranean flair from sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, and feta cheese. Lots of feta cheese.  🙂

Saucy Shrimp is a little on the sweet side which I love. I added a full tablespoon of sugar but also quite a bit of lime juice.

Serve Saucy Shrimp over warm, crusty bread and you will think you’ve died and gone to heaven.

The sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and feta really make this dish. I love the concentrated tomato taste the sun-dried tomatoes give it and the salty flavor from the olives and feta.

Some heavy cream makes it perfectly rich and heavenly. Enjoy!

Saucy Shrimp tastes incredible served over crusty bread as an appetizer. Sun-dried tomatoes give it a concentrated tomato flavor and feta cheese and kalamata olives add a little saltiness.
PREP: 10 minutes
COOK: 12 minutes
TOTAL: 22 minutes
SERVINGS: 6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon heaping tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup clam juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sliced sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup chopped kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter and the oil in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat.
  • Season shrimp with salt and black pepper and place in pan. Cook just until pink on both sides and remove from pan and set aside. At this point they should be somewhat undercooked because they will finish cooking in the sauce. Careful not to overcook them or they will get rubbery.
  • Add remaining tablespoon of butter to pan along with garlic. Cook garlic for 1 minute.
  • Add tomato paste and clam juice. Stir to mix tomato paste into clam juice. Let simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add white pepper, salt, sugar, lime juice, cream, and sun-dried tomatoes. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Return shrimp to pan and add olives. Cook just long enough to cook shrimp through (just a minute or 2)
  • Crumble feta cheese on top and serve.

  1. One one of my all-time favorite dishes. I was hooked from the very first time I had it and ate it on a regular basis. When Bonefish stop serving it I went online and found this recipe. Just a side note, you can boil up some linguine, angel hair pasta and serve it over top of it. Absolutely delicious!

  2. Awesome thank you for the recipe can’t find it anymore at bone fish. My favorite topping for fish.

  3. I love this appetizer at bonefish. This recipe is spot on. Made it for a family party and everyone loved it! Just had a request to make it again for a baby shower next month. Everyone LOVED it!!

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I just cooked it today for me and parents and it tasted like it came directly from Bonefish Grill! This was so much fun to cook!😊😊

  5. Thanks–my fave shrimp dish ever, and it’s rarely on the Bonefish menu anymore. There was a time when it was made with shrimp and bay scallops–any seafood combo is wonderful. Don’t ever skimp on the garlic!

  6. Suggestion: switch the feta cheese with goat cheese! It’s to die for…i always ask for goat cheese instead at bonefish

  7. So great and I’d have to say my husband said better tasting! We always go to Bonefish Grille just to have the saucy shrimp. It turned out just as great! Happy I was able to make it at home for my family now! 😍
    Thank you!

      Yay! That is great to here Roxana. I think Saucy Shrimp is my favorite restaurant food ever. Don’t get to eat it nearly enough!

  8. Just found your site today! Found your New Orleans-Style BBQ Shrimp and followed you here.

    Can you elaborate how to serve this Saucy Shrimp? You said to serve over crusty bread. Toasted French bread in a bowl or dish with this ladled over and eaten with a knife and fork? This sounds delicious!

  9. Near perfection! I’ve been eating this at Bonefish Grill for the last 10 years. The only complaint i have is its just a little too sweet. I would use a teaspoon instead of a tablespoon.
    Thanks for the yummy recipe!

    Just ate at Bonefish for the first time yesterday. The bang-bang shrimp was wonderful. However, the key lime pie with pecan crust was fabulous! Does anyone have the recipe?

  11. Brenda Valponi

    Had this for the first time at Bonefish and definitely wanted to make at home. Your recipe appears extremely easy with all ingredients readily available. Will make and serve over angel hair pasta

  12. I’ve never heard of Bonefish Grill, but this shrimp looks like one of the best things ever! Gorgeous dish, Christin, and I’m dying to try it!

  13. Amy (Savory Moments)

    I’ve never been to Bonefish Grill (though there is one in the area), but this shrimp looks spectacular!
