Glazed Prawns with Walnuts

Author Mr. Chow


  • 12 extra large fresh shrimp (cleaned skin peeled and tail out)
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons fresh mayonnaise
  • 12-15 glazed walnuts
  • 3/4 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pinch mustard powder


To prepare shrimp:

  1. Cut the back of shrimp (to make it slightly curl when cooked) and coat with corn starch, egg whites and a pinch of salt to marinate for a few hours.

To prepare sauce:

  1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise with freshly squeezed lemon, honey, salt and a pinch of mustard powder thoroughly.
  2. Heat wok with vegetable oil (medium-hot) and deep fry shrimp (oil must be very clean to make sure shrimp doesn’t come out dirty).
  3. Deep fried shrimp must be drained to take away the excess oil.
  4. In a bowl, toss deep fried shrimp with prepared mayonnaise sauce, coat shrimp evenly.
  5. To serve:
  6. Place the shrimp on a plate and add Glazed Walnuts on top.
  7. Note: Prawns must look white and creamy. When extra large prawns are not avaiable, you can use slightly smaller prawns.
