walnutprawnHere is a quick and really easy recipe for Chinese Walnut Prawns. It’s really tasty and really easy to make, but not the healthiest dish I’ve brought you.


Walnut Prawns

1 lbs Shrimp, peeled and cleaned
1/2c cornstarch
1/2c walnuts (candied are best)
1/4c mayonnaise
3 tbsp honey
3 tbsp condensed milk
1-2c chopped cabbage or lettuce

Peel and clean the shrimp and lightly salt. In a wok or frying pan, heat up enough oil to fill up about an inch of the pan. While oil is heating, mix the mayo, milk and honey in a bowl and set to the side. Dredge the shrimp in cornstarch and drop into the hot oil, cook only long enough for it to start curling and change color. Remove and drain on a piece of paper towel, the shrimp will cook a little further while sitting. After you have removed the excess oil off the shrimp drop it into the mayo mixture and toss.

Serve it on a bed of greens and top with walnuts.

See, easy!
