Make and share this Honey Walnut Prawns recipe from Food.com.
- 4 ounces shelled walnut halves
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 cups water
- peanut oil, for deep frying (about 2 cups)
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 1 lb prawns or 1 lb shrimp, shelled and de-veined
- 3 egg whites
- 1⁄2 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1 clove garlic, finely minced
- 1 tablespoon sake vinegar or 1 tablespoon plum wine vinegar or 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- In a saucepan, place walnut halves and enough water to cover plus another inch; boil for 10 minutes then remove and drain walnuts (discard water).
- Place in the saucepan the walnuts, 2 cups water, and 1/2 cup sugar and boil for an additional 10 minutes.
- Remove walnuts from the water, drain well, pat dry with paper towels, then stir with honey in a bowl until they're coated well.
- Deep fry the walnuts in peanut oil at approximately 325 F for 5 to 8 minutes, until golden; set aside, placed on plate or cookie sheet to drain (don't use paper towels because they'll stick).
- Shell and de-vein the prawns or shrimp (leaving the tails intact), then dry well with a paper towel.
- Coat the prawns with the egg white, roll in Panko, and deep fry three or four at a time (to keep from sticking together) in peanut oil for 2 minutes.
- In a bowl, mix the garlic, vinegar, mayonnaise, sweetened condensed milk and sugar, then toss together with the prawns in a hot wok or frying pan and sauté for about 1 to 2 minutes, stirring, until they're well-coated.
- Serve immediately with walnuts over cooked rice.
- Makes 4 to 6 servings.
