with Garlic Rice & Roasted Parmesan Broccoli
My inspiration Rasa Malaysia
2 lb. raw shrimp (4-6 ppl)
6 Tbsp mayo
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp sweetened condensed milk
squeeze of fresh lemon to taste
2 egg whites for coating shrimp
1 cup cornstarch for coating shrimp
oil for frying
large pot or wok for frying (I recommend cast iron)
green onion for garnish
1 cup walnuts, halves or pieces
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
sprinkle of salt
4 broccoli crowns
jelly roll pan for roasting
Place your shrimp in a bowl of cold water to defrost.
While shrimp is defrosting make your sauce. In a bowl add mayo, honey,
& sweetened condensed milk. Stir together and taste.
Add a squeeze of lemon to taste. Set aside.
For the candied walnuts. Add the water to your saucepan. Bring to a boil and add your sugar & a sprinkle of salt. Boil until it is golden in color. Add your walnuts, turn down the heat and boil for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and set aside on parchment paper to cool. Once cooled break into pieces. I have not mastered this process yet.
Peel your shrimp & set aside in colander to drain. Itís important that thereís not too much moisture on the shrimp.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Wash your broccoli crowns. Cut florets off of the stalk and place in a large bowl.
Break your florets up if they are too big.
Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salts & pepper to taste.
Place on lightly greased jelly roll pan. Place in preheated oven and roast for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven, stir,
sprinkle with parmesan cheese and put back in oven for 10 mins.
Remove from oven and check for doneness. If needed, roast for a few more minutes.
Place your wok or large pot on the stove. Add some oil, it doesnít have to be deep. Maybe 2 cups. Heat your oil over med-high heat while you prepare your shrimp. I used sunflower oil. Canola oil would also work well.
Place your shrimp in a large bowl and add 2 egg whites. Stir well to coat.
Add your cornstarch and stir well to coat.
Prepare a pan with paper towels to drain your shrimp as you fry them.
When your oil is hot add one shrimp and fry for 2-3 minutes. If it browns too fast then turn down the heat. If it doesnít cook then turn the heat up and let the oil heat a little longer.
When your oil is ready then fry your shrimp a few at a time taking care not to crowd them.
Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all the shrimp is done.
Place shrimp in a large bowl and pour the sauce over them.
Stir to coat.
Serve over garlic rice. Sprinkle with candied walnuts and green onions. Add some broccoli and youíre done. Nothing to do but eat it up! YUM! This recipe is huband/family approved!
