  1. Stir together the water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and add the walnuts. Boil for 2 minutes, then drain and place walnuts on a cookie sheet to dry.
  2. Whip egg whites in a medium bowl until foamy. Stir in the mochiko until it has a pasty consistency. Heat the oil in a heavy deep skillet over medium-high heat. Dip shrimp into the mochiko batter, and then fry in the hot oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  3. In a medium serving bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, honey and sweetened condensed milk. Add shrimp and toss to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle the candied walnuts on top and serve.

I used cornstarch instead of the mochiko...a little more than 2/3 cup to make it pasty and doubled the recipe for the sauce. My husband said it was really good and my daughter asked me to make m...

As good if not better than any restaurant versions I've had.

Thanks so much, great recipe. I've been looking for this recipe for a long time now, and I'll look no further! The proportions were just right. One thing I did do differently was to cut the larg...

I used regular flour and meringue powder/water equivalent instead of the listed ingredients. I liked the fact that the shrimp coating did not get soggy after the sauce was added. I also doubled ...
