This Honey Walnut Shrimp tastes as good as it sounds.
I love shrimp and this deep fried version with candied walnuts is just what I was looking for. It also has a delicious dipping sauce that includes lemon juice, mayonnaise, honey and sweetened condensed milk. That combination may sound a bit unusual, but is surprisingly tasty.
Delight your family and friends with this recipe on a special occasion. Enjoy!
