INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup walnut halves

  • 1/2 cup cornstarch

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Heat 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Add sugar and stir, constantly, until golden and thickened. Add walnuts and gently toss to combine. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined plate.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, honey and condensed milk; set aside.
  4. Season shrimp with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Working one at a time, dip the shrimp into the egg, then dredge in the cornstarch, pressing to coat.
