1 pound of tiger shrimp, peel and deveined
A pinch of salt
A pinch of white pepper
2 cups canola oil
3 oz of walnut halves
1/2 cup of water
6 tablespoon of sugar
1 cup of cornstarch
1 head of broccoli
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon of honey
1/2 teaspoon rice vinegar
a pinch of salt
To prepare this 3 ounces of walnuts. First, let’s heat up 1 inch deep canola oil or 2 cups over high heat. (You can test the oil with a pair of chopsticks. When you see bubbles like this, that means it’s ready.) Add the walnuts in and fry them until golden brown. Take them out and drain the oil.
Then in a small pan, heat up 1/2 cup of water and 6 tablespoons of sugar and cook over low heat until dissolved. Introduce the walnuts to the pan and stir until the walnuts are coated with syrup for about 5 minutes. Transfer them to a parchment paper and let it cool.
To make the sauce, in a bowl add ¼ cup of mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1/2 teaspoon rice vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Mix well.
Heat up 1 pot of water. Blanch 1 head of broccoli for about 30 seconds. Take them out and drain.
To prepare the shrimp. Here we have 1 pound of peeled and deveined shrimp. We are going to season with a pinch of salt and a pinch of white pepper.
Crack an egg and whisk. Pour it back into the shrimp and mix. We are going to dip the shrimp into 1 cup of cornstarch.
Heat up the oil again and until hot. You can test the oil with the same method. Add the shrimp. (You may have to cook in several batches.) fry them until golden. Take it out and drain the oil.
Put the shrimp in a large mixing bowl. Add the sauce. Mix and toss.
Place everything on a plate. Serve!
