I can't wait too long time to share this recipe. But, first of all, let me tell you the story behind this food.

Few days ago, my hubby and I went to an all-you-can-eat sushi & seafood buffet. BUFFET?? yeeaaaa....that was cool, the foods are not bad at all, the sushi is good as well. Then, I found this food in hot entrees' area, it left few pieces of shrimp only, so I grabbed it all ;). You know what, it tasted so good. For me, it was a star on that day, compared another hot entrees, honey walnut shrimp is the best, from the taste and the texture.

But,......oo.....the bad news is my hubby got food poisoning after ate at the buffet :(.......the whole night until the next day, he felt really unwell. He got headache and his stomach was pain. He can't sleep good that night. He told me that he felt like want to vomit but he can't. Oh my God, that night became a horrible night for both of us, I can't sleep also because I looked after him. It was scary since we don't know what is wrong with him. Then, we figured it out, that he ate raw mussels which are I didn't eat. Probably, he can't eat raw meat or the mussels were not fresh.
Luckily, now he is ok....phewwwww........

Today, I choosed honey walnut shrimp as our dinner, andddddd........it is soooo good....yummmm.......hubby gave the same comment that it tasted good :). I found lots of recipes of honey walnut shrimp, I mixed those recipes by adding and minus the ingredients ;).

For those who likes shrimp, you have to try this recipe. It is really T.O.P dish ;)

Honey Walnut Shrimp

1 lb of large or medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 cups water
3 tbsps white sugar
1/2 cup walnuts (or pecans)
4 egg whites
2/3 cup glutinous rice flour (you can use corn starch as well)
3 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsps honey
1 tbsp canned sweetened condensed milk (I substituted it to 2 tbsp milk powder + 1 tbsp granulated sugar)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2-1/2 cups vegetable oil for frying

Stir together the water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and add the walnuts. Boil for 2 minutes, then drain and place walnuts on a cookie sheet to dry.
Heat the oil until almost smoking, then deep fry walnuts until they're shiny and brown, no longer golden.Place walnuts on cookie sheet, let cool.
Whip egg whites in a medium bowl until foamy. Stir in the glutinous rice flour until it has a pasty consistency. Heat the oil in a heavy deep skillet over medium-high heat. Dip shrimp into the batter, and then fry in the hot oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
In a medium serving bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, honey and sweetened condensed milk (me -- milk mixture instead of sweetened condensed milk). Add shrimp and toss to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle the candied walnuts on top and serve.
