Honey Walnut Shrimp

Step 1: Prepare the walnuts

1/2 cup walnut halves 
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water

Turned your stove on medium heat, add in the butter, and allow it to melt completely. Then pour in your walnuts to coat them with the melted butter and then set the nuts aside. Pour water and brown sugar into a small pot or pan and turn your stove on medium heat. Stir everything around until it turns into thick caramel. Then pour in the buttered walnuts and coat them with the caramel. Allow the nuts to boil in the caramel for about 5 minutes; then turn off the heat and pour the nuts onto a pan covered with parchment paper. Place the nuts in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to cool and harden.

Beat the egg in a large bowl, add in the shrimp and coat them with the beaten egg. Pour oil into a pot and turn your stove on high heat. When the oil is hot, dredge the shrimp in the corn starch and carefully drop it into the oil. Fry the shrimp in the hot oil for about 5 minutes or until they are lightly golden brown and fully cooked on the inside. Finally remove the shrimp from the oil and place them on paper towels to drain.
