Prep Time: | Cook Time:
1 lb big shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup walnut halves
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 egg white
1/2 cup corn starch, for coating the shrimp
Oil, for deep-frying
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
In a bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, honey, condensed milk and lemon juice. Mix well and set aside.
Prepare the Caramel Glaze by heating up 1/2 cup of water until it boils. Add in the sugar and keep stirring until it turns golden color. Add the walnut halves into the caramel. Lower the heat for another 1-2 minutes, then remove the walnuts and place them on a piece of parchment paper to dry. Make sure the walnuts are not sticking together. (DO NOT use regular paper towels as the walnut halves will stick to the paper.)
Heat up the oil in a pan or wok. Once the oil is heated, coat the shrimp with the corn starch generously. Shake off the excess corn starch before frying the shrimp. When the shrimp is cooked, remove them from the oil and drain on paper towels. Add the shrimp and toss well with the mayonnaise sauce. Transfer the honey walnut shrimp to a serving platter and top the shrimp with the candied walnuts and serve immediately.
