Honey Walnut Prawns

I had a request from another webmaster at Link Referral about a recipe that we love for prawns. This is the one that stood out to me most as it is one of our most favorite recipes. When we make homemade Chinese food, this is what we have also. It is similar to tempura and oh so yummy!! Here it is:

Honey Walnut Prawns

1 lb of large or medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup walnuts
5 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 cups oil
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup egg whites
2 Tbsp honey
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 Tbsp sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup oil


Rinse walnuts, then boil in 5 cups of water, continually changing water until clear. When clear, boil with sugar until sugar dissolves. Heat 2 cups of oil until almost smoking, then deep fry walnuts until they are shiny and brown, no longer golden. Place walnuts on cookie sheet, let cool.

Mix cornstarch and egg whites together to form a thick, sticky texture and mix well with shrimp. Set aside. Mix honey, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and condensed milk in a medium bowl until smooth. Heat oil until boiling, then deep fry shrimp until golden brown. Drain. Fold in honey/mayonnaise mixture. Mix well, sprinkle with walnuts, and arrange on platter.

This isn't the time saver recipe that I am used to but it tastes so good that it is worth the effort. The whole family loves this shrimp with some stir fry, or sweet and sour chicken, or whatever Asian food you like can be the main meal with this recipe.
