♥ Honey Walnut Shrimps ♥

Honey walnut shrimp is an interesting American-style Chinese food I have come across during my exchange at San Francisco. It is a combination of sweet and salty, crunchy and creamy, which is common in form of takeaway.

It consists of shrimps coated in an egg-white-corn-starch batter, deep fried to golden brown and toss together in a creamy sweet mayo dressing, serves with more caramelized walnuts.

This honey walnut shrimp is so easy to make and it is so much healthier than takeout! You can control the among and calorie of the creamy honey sauce by using low-fat mayonnaise and light milk.
