Honey Walnut Shrimp? With sweet mayonnaise sauce? Uhm, no thank you. Yes, I'm sure. Yes, I know it's very popular. No, I'm not allergic to nuts. Or mayonnaise. Or shrimp. Just, well, just no.
But the curiosity. It consumes me sometimes. Could it really be as bad as it sounds? Surely not.
Ohmysweetmotherofpearl. Yes! Sweet mayonnaise on big beautiful lightly battered and fried shrimp with honey candied walnuts. With broccoli. On rice. How could something so, so, so wrong be so right?
This is leftover from Yao take-out, but it's surely super easy and fast to do at home, I'd imagine it could be done before the rice is cooked if you start with shelled and de-veined shrimp.
