Honey Walnut Shrimp
· 1lb large shrimp (peeled and deveined, with tails removed)
· 1 cup water
· 2/3 cup white sugar
· ½ cup walnuts
· 4 egg whites
· 2/3 cup cornstarch
· 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
· 2 tablespoons honey
· 1 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
· Fresh lemon juice
· Canola oil (for frying)
In a small sauce pan mix water and sugar. Bring to a boil and add the walnuts. Boil for 2
minutes, drain and place on a baking sheet to dry.
Beat egg whites in a medium bowl until foamy. Stir in cornstarch until it becomes somewhat
thick. Dip shrimp into the batter and fry in hot oil for 2-3 minutes on each side or until
golden brown. Drain on a cooling rack to keep coating crispy.
In a bowl, mix mayonnaise, honey, sweetened condensed milk, and lemon juice. Add
shrimp and toss to coat with the sauce. Add walnuts and serve.
