Mix together the ingredients for the sauce. Cover and set aside. Beat the egg and milk together in a shallow dish and set aside. Mix together the ingredients for the breading in a shallow dish and set aside. Cover a baking sheet or large plate with parchment paper.
To bread shrimp, dip shrimp in breading, dip in egg mixture, then back in breading. Place breaded shrimp on covered baking sheet. Once all shrimp is breaded, place baking sheet in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
Meanhwile, heat the oil in fryer to 350 degrees. Don't worry if you don't have a fryer; you can also fry these in a shallow skillet over medium high heat. Fry shrimp in batches for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
Once all the shrimp is fried, place them in a large bowl and add in about 1/2 of the sauce. Gently stir shrimp and sauce together to coat shrimp. Add more sauce as needed.
