Honey Walnut Shrimp

This is such a sinfully easy recipe, if I were you I wouldn't tell any one how easy it is better if they think you went to some real work here for this dish...

Just a few indredients...
1 pound of prawns I used the 16/20 per pound
2 egg whites
1/3 cup of cornstarch
1/2 cup of mayonaise
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of walnut
1 cup of water
3/4 cup of sugar
shredded cabbage

ok let's get the party started!

put the walnuts and water and sugar in a pan and boil for 2 minutes,
take the nuts out and spread out and leave to dry on a plate.

for the shrimp batter....whip the egg whites until really frothy....

here we are really frothy! then

add the cornstarch.....

this will become the constistancy of elmers glue....set aside until you finish the sauce

for the sauce, put the mayo, the honey and the sweet milk in a bowl and mix....

thoroughly and set aside....add 1 cup of oil to a  pan and heat until a medium heat to medium high....
dredge the shrimp in the batter and drop in pan....cook until golden....

turning over....this goes rather quickly....

drain on paper towel and toss shrimp with the sauce, serve on a bed of cabbage (really good with the sauce on the cabbage). sprinkle the walnuts over top...

I guess it is just enough for 3 hungry people....

This dish is a very fast recipe to put together once everything is prepped, so have your side dishes ready, great with Thai rice or regular rice and a quick stir fried vegetables like pea pods. Another side note: you can put the nuts in the hot oil for a minute to crisp them up a little, they are crisp then on the outside and softish on the good! 
This just came in: since you only used 1 tablespoon out of the sweetened condensed milk, you need to use up the rest of the can, take 1 can of the sweet milk, 1 cups of chocolate chips and 1 cube of butter and melt together and you have the best hot fudge sauce money can buy!!!!

Cheers to Happy  !!
