Author's Notes

Double the number of walnut halves because you won't be able to resist snacking on the candied walnuts as you prepare the dish.

Shallow-frying takes about 1 minute on each side, depending on the size of the shrimp.
Deep-frying takes about 2 minutes for each batch.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Prepare candied walnuts by combining Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup) and Water (1/2 cup) in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently with a silicone spatula to prevent burning.
Step 2
When the caramel turns into a nice golden brown color, add Walnut Pieces (1/2 cup) to the saucepan. Stir for about 15-20 seconds, and remove the walnuts from the saucepan with a spider skimmer.
Step 3
Place the candied walnuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to allow them to cool. Set aside.
Step 4
To prepare the Large Shrimp (1 lb) , place them into a bowl together with the Salt (1 tsp) and Egg (1) . Coat the shrimp in the mixture.
Step 5
Then pour Corn Starch (1 cup) in a separate shallow bowl or plate, and coat the shrimp in the cornstarch.
Step 6
Heat enough Cooking Oil (as needed) in a frying pan or a wok to shallow-fry or deep-fry the shrimp.
Step 7
Fry the shrimp in small batches, shaking off the excess cornstarch as you carefully place each shrimp in the oil. Fry till the shrimp turn to a pale golden brown color for about 1-2 minutes per batch.
Step 8
Place the fried shrimp on a cooling rack over a baking sheet, or on oil-absorbing paper.
Step 9
Make the creamy sauce by combining Mayonnaise (3 Tbsp) , Honey (1 1/2 Tbsp) , Sweetened Condensed Milk (1 Tbsp) , and Lemon (1) in a small bowl. Stir well.
Step 10
Transfer the shrimp to a large bowl, add the creamy honey sauce, and toss to combine.
Step 11
Top the shrimp with candied walnuts, and garnish with Scallions (as needed) .
Step 12
Enjoy with steamed white rice or brown rice.
