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

  • 1
    Peel and deveined the shrimp/prawn. Pat dry with paper towels, add the egg white, mix well with the shrimp 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)
