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.

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.

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.
