Intro: Honey Walnut Shrimp
1lb large shrimp (peeled and deveined, with tails removed)
1 cup water
2/3 cup white sugar
1 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.
