Mango and Orange, Honey Walnut Shrimp

This honey walnut shrimp is nothing short of a dream.

Sometimes it can be hard to try something new at a restaurant when they have a particular dish on the menu that I really really love.

For me, when at a Mexican restaurant, it’s enchiladas.  I just have to order them every time.

And when I’m at a restaurant that has honey walnut shrimp on the menu, that’s it.

My menu closes and I’m ready to order.  I’ll have the honey walnut shrimp please.

Here’s a recipe for honey walnut shrimp that has a little twist to it with mango and orange added to the mix.

I have to admit that instead of taking pictures of these delicious shrimp, I wanted to gobble them up.

The light and crispy battered shrimp is so good when topped with the mango and orange honey sauce.

printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

Here’s how to make it.

For the Candied Walnuts:

Heat a medium size non-stick pan on medium heat and add water.

Add sugar…

…and stir.

Continue to stir until the sugar dissolves.

When the water starts to boil, add the walnuts and…

…stir.

Let cook while stirring until the liquid starts to reduce (about 6 minutes).

Then, using a slotted spoon, strain the liquid from the nuts, and transfer the walnuts to a parchment paper-lined sheet pan or plate.

Let cool for 15 minutes.

For the Mango and Orange, Honey Shrimp Sauce:

Dice the mango.

In a medium size bowl,

add the mango,

fresh orange juice,

honey,

and mayonnaise.

Next,

whisk together, cover with plastic wrap and set aside in the refrigerator.

For the Shrimp:

In a medium size bowl, add ice water, flour and a beaten egg.

Whisk together.

Add the diced mango…

…and mix together.  Set aside.

Salt and pepper both sides of the shrimp.

Lightly sprinkle cornstarch on both sides of the shrimp.

Set aside for a moment.

Heat a large skillet on medium heat and add canola oil.

Drop a tiny bit of flour in the oil and when it bubbles…

…dip the shrimp in the batter and,

carefully add the shrimp to the pan (about 4 or 5 shrimp).

Cook in small batches so not to overcrowd the pan.

When the bottom sides of the shrimp turn a golden color, using tongs carefully turn them over to the other side.

If the oil starts to get too hot, turn the heat down right away.

When both sides of the shrimp are a golden color and the shrimp is thoroughly cooked…

…transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate.

Repeat the process with the remaining shrimp.

Stir the mango and orange honey sauce and then dip the shrimp and candied walnuts into the sauce.

Coat all sides of the shrimp and walnuts and serve right away while warm.

Serve the shrimp and walnuts over warm rice…

…and garnish with small strips of orange peel and diced green onions.

Next,

dig in and…

…enjoy.
