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!

How to Make Honey Walnut Shrimp

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)
