  • 1 egg white
  • ⅓ cup cornstarch or all purpose flour
  • 18-24 large shrimp
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
Mayo Sauce
  • 1½ teaspoons mayo
  • 1½ teaspoons Kewpie mayo
  • ½ tablespoon honey
  • ½ tablespoon condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1½ teaspoons Sriracha (optional)
Add ins
  • ½ cup toasted candied walnuts
  • black sesame
  • cilantro for garnish
  • rice for serving
  1. Coat the shrimp with egg white and cornstarch. The easiest way is to have stations set up. One bowl with the egg white. One bowl or dish with the cornstarch. One dish to place the coated shrimp. Dip the shrimp in the egg white and then transfer to the cornstarch to lightly coat. Continue this for all the shrimp.
  2. Heat up vegetable oil in a deep skillet.Once the oil is hot, cook several shrimp at a time until the outside is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Once the shrimp is cooked, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Set aside for now.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together Kewpie mayo, honey, condensed milk, and lemon juice. For a slightly spicy kick, add Sriracha sauce.
  4. Add the mayo to the shrimp and mix until all the shrimp are lightly coated. Toss with the toasted candied walnuts.
  5. Serve the honey walnut shrimp warm.
