Caramelized walnuts: Heat water in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to boil.  Add sugar and stir until thicken.  Add walnuts and gently combine.  Transfer to a plate, lined with parchment paper.

Mayo sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, honey and condensed milk.  Set aside.

Crispy battered shrimps: Season shrimps with salt and pepper, to taste.  Dip the shrimp into the egg, then dredge in the cornstarch, pressing to coat.  Add the shrimp to the skillet, 8-10 at a time, and fry until evenly golden brown and crispy, about 1-2 minutes on each side.  Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

 In a large bowl, combine shrimp and honey mixture.  {I skip this part because I like to dip the shrimps in the sauce, or mix all together just prior eating}.

Serve immediately {with jasmine rice}, topped with walnuts.

Honey Walnut Shrimp is considered ‘westernized Chinese food’, very simple dish to prepare and all ingredients can be found in western supermarket.  I suggest you double the batch cause you’ll regret if you don’t.

Yummy !
