This is one of my favorite shrimp dishes. I once ordered this from a chinese restuarant a few years ago, and fell inlove with the uniqueness in taste! I hope you will enjoy the taste too!

Ingredients

INGREDIENTS:

1 lb
31/40 shrimp (peeled & deveined)
1/2 c
walnut halves
3 Tbsp
mayonnaise
1 Tbsp
honey
1/4 Tbsp
condensed milk
1 tsp
lemon juice
1 large
egg white
1/2 c
corn starch (for coating shrimp)
1/4 c
pineapple chunks, fresh (optional)
canola oil (for frying)

FOR THE WALNUTS:

1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel and deveined the shrimp/prawn. Pat dry with paper towels, add the egg white, mix well with the shrimp and set aside.
2
Rinse the walnut halves with water, drain and set aside.
3
Heat up the water until it boils and add in the sugar.
4
Keep stirring until it turns thick and golden color and then add the walnut.
5
Boil for 2 minutes, then drain and place walnuts on a cookie sheet/parchment paper to dry. (Regular paper will not work as the walnut will stick to it).
6
Heat the oil in a wok over high heat.
7
Coat the shrimp with a thick layer of corn starch and then fry in the hot oil until golden brown. Remove the shrimps from the wok and drain on paper towels.
8
In a bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, honey, condensed milk and lemon juice.
9
Add shrimp and toss with the mayonnaise sauce.
10
Transfer to a serving plate and garnish the candied walnuts on top of the shrimp and serve immediately. (if desired, you can also add the pineapple chunk for garnish)
