A Favorite Recipe: Honey Walnut Prawns

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

I have a really delicious asian dish I enjoy.  It is Honey Walnut Prawns or Shrimp.  When I find prawns on special in my favorite local grocery store, BelAir, it always acts as a catalyst to cook them up.

Here's the recipe.

Honey Walnut Prawns


  • 1 lb of large peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cups oil
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • 3 Tbs mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 Tbs condensed milk 



Rinse walnuts in water, then boil in 5 cups water, continually changing water until clear. Once clear, boil with sugar until sugar dissolves.

Deep fry walnuts in 2 cups oil, until they are shiny and brown, no longer golden.

Place walnuts on cookie sheet, let cool.

Combine cornstarch and egg whites together to form a thick, sticky texture and mix well with Shrimp. Set aside. Mix honey, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and condensed milk in a medium bowl until smooth. Heat oil until boiling, then deep fry the shrimp until golden brown.

Drain, then fold in honey mayonnaise mixture. Mix well, sprinkle with walnuts, and arrange on platter.

[note from Myrl]:  I like serving this dish on a bed of shredded carrots

The last half cup on the list is blank. Is there a missing ingredient?

Hi Myrl... love prawns, but as I'm allergic to honey and to walnuts, afraid that this recipe is not quite for me.

How many calories are in this dish, Myrl? Or do you think it's countered by the bed of carrots, LOL? Actually, the sugar content seems awfully high at 1 cup of sugar and you know, carrots have sugar, too.

Naturally, if you don't have to watch your sugar intake and you don't care about calories, hey, go walk on the other side of the street why doncha and leave us old folks alone.

Must admit it sounds delicious.

Oh my, sounds delicious, and not too complicated.  I try to avoid any deep frying at home though but will gladly order those items at a restaurant.

Well, I looked it up, Myrl. There are 1,110 calories in a cup & 1/2 serving, which is about what most people would consume. That is almost my entire caloric intake for the day. You are a courageous person.

Myrl Jeffcoat I really admire that you put so much into swimming, Myrl. I could not do it. Everybody says it's the best exercise ever! I think the best exercise is the one you are willing to do, LOL.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat , what a pretty dish. It probably tastes wonderful, too. I have never tried it. When I add a high calorie dish, I usually plan for a hike to A Mountain nearby, too. And sometimes double the miles. :)
