Honey Walnut Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
I recently had honey walnut shrimp for the first time on vacation in Oahu's Chinatown. My friend loved it so much that we decided to try to duplicate it using your recipe. I made some adjustments, during and after tasting it. I used 1/4 cup of corn starch to 4 whipped egg whites and had quite a bit left over even tho I used more than a pound and a half of 21/26 shrimp. I would start with 2 beaten egg whites and add enough corn starch to make a fairly thin, but not soupy batter in the future. The shredded cabbage is a must! It adds texture and makes the presentation quite attractive and tastes great as other reviewers have mentioned, by catching and holding the sauce. I doubled the sauce recipe and adjusted the taste by squeezing a 1/4 fresh lemon to add some lightness. Regarding the walnuts - I dissolved the sugar in 1/2 cup water and boiled for 5 minutes. Drained and dried on a cookie sheet. I didn't think they needed further treatment. I will definitely make this recipe again and will likely also use it with chicken as others have suggested.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
Being diet-conscious and lactose intolerant, I ommitted the cheese and added a liberal dose of oregano along with the oil and garlic. It had a nice italian zip and fewer calories.
