Ingredient Notes and Shopping Tips
Shrimp: Fresh or frozen shrimp would fine in this recipe. I used frozen because my small town grocery store doesn't carry fresh. To thaw frozen shrimp place in a bowl of cold water. Thoroughly pat dry before frying.
Walnuts: For the most crunch use walnut halves, not pieces. If you don't have them on hand pecans would be a good substitute.
Honey: Use good quality local honey if possible. Pick it up at your local farmers' market. Another liquid sweetener like pure maple syrup could also be substituted.
Tips and Tricks
Dry Shrimp: Pat your shrimp as dry as possible. This will help the coating strick and for it to fry up nice and crispy.
Use 2 Hands: Use one hand to dip your shrimp into the egg, and another into the cornstarch. This will prevent you from battering your hands themselves.
Fry Carefully: Always add the shrimp into the pan away from you to avoid splattering. Cook only a few at a time to avoid lowering the oil temperature. This can lead to a soggy or greasy end product.
Reheat: Reheat in the oven on a baking sheet at 350 degrees for 4-6 minutes.
