Restaurant-Style Honey Walnut Shrimp

Homemade honey walnut shrimp is so much better than what you get at the restaurant! It has more depth of flavor (sweet and creamy goodness!) and the dish is light and fresh. Plus, it’s easy to make and only takes 20 minutes to cook!

What is Honey Walnut Shrimp?

Honey walnut shrimp is a Chinese-American dish consisting of shrimp that have been dipped in batter, fried, and tossed in a sweet creamy sauce made of condensed milk, mayonnaise, honey, and a mixture of other ingredients.

Key Ingredients:

Candied Walnuts Shrimp Sweetened Condensed Milk Honey


Make the candied walnuts by heating up a small pan and adding the walnuts, butter, sugar, water, and salt. Combine the mayonnaise, sweetened condensed milk, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and honey in a bowl and whisk until the ingredients are combined. Place the cornstarch in a bowl and add the shrimp. Toss the shrimp until they are evenly coated and transfer them to a plate. Heat up 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet and when the oil is hot, add the shrimp, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Add the cooked shrimp to the sauce and add the walnuts too. Toss the shrimp and walnuts until they are evenly coated and serve them over shredded cabbage and with a side of rice.
