Honey Walnut Shrimp
We love Chinese food. Honey Walnut Shrimp is one of our favorites. It’s that crispy battered shrimp tossed in creamy sauce and topped with candied walnuts. It is easy to make too.. Just be careful not to eat all the candied walnuts while you wait for your shrimps!
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 cups walnut
- 4 egg whites
- 2/3 cup Mochiko(rice flour)
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp canned sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup cooking oil for frying
- Place walnuts in a medium stock pot. Cover with water and boil for 2 minutes. Strain, but do not rinse. Transfer to a bowl, and toss with sugar while still hot until well coated. Heat about 2-3 inches of oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. When oil appears to shimmer, fry 1 nut to test for heat. Nut should begin to sizzle immediately. Fry 1/3 batch of nuts at a time for 4 to 5 minutes uncovered. Toss nuts before each batch, and repeat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer each batch to a cookie sheet to cool.
- Whip egg whites in a medium bowl until foamy. Stir in the Mochiko until it has a pasty consistency. Heat the oil in a pan or a heavy deep skillet over medium-high heat. Dip shrimp into the Mochiko batter and then fry until golden brown, about 5-6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
- In a medium serving bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, honey, and sweetened condensed milk. Add shrimp and toss to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle the candied walnuts on op and serve.
