This is my favorite Chinese dish. Since I'm diabetic I use Splenda instead of the sugar

How to Make Honey Walnut Shrimp

Step-by-Step

  • 1Coarsely chop the walnuts. Don't make the pieces too small.
  • 2Heat butter in a small saucepan on medium-low heat until melted.
  • 3Add the walnuts and stir until they are completely coated with butter.
  • 4Once they are coated, turn the heat up to high and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • 5Turn the heat back down to medium and sprinkle with the 2 T sugar while stirring to coat each walnut.
  • 6Cook for another 2 minutes stirring constantly. After 2 minutes, turn off the heat and set walnuts aside to cool.
  • 7In a large cup, mix together all the ingredients for the sauce. Set the mixture aside.
  • 8In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the batter.
  • 9Once the batter is thoroughly mixed, add the shrimp and stir to coat each piece.
  • 10Leave the shrimp in the batter.until they are ready to go in the hot oil.
  • 11In a skillet, heat the oil on high
  • 12Once the oil is hot add the shrimp one at a time directly from the batter into the oil. Make sure to let the excess batter drip off before placing in the oil.
  • 13Cook 8-10 shrimp at a time so that the skillet is not crowded.
  • 14Cook the shrimp 2-3 minutes or until they are a light golden brown.
  • 15Remove them with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  • 16Continue cooking in batches until all the shrimp is cooked.
  • 17Once all the shrimp is done, place in a large bowl. Add the walnuts and sauce and toss to coat.
  • 18You can add 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes if you like. Just add to the bowl for the final step.
