Walnut shrimp is one of those dishes that goes a long way back for me. It’s a must-have dish appearing at most Chinese banquets, whether it’s for a wedding, birthday, Chinese New Year, or newborn baby.

Ingredients for 4 servings

For the candied walnuts:
30 walnut halves (I like a lot of walnuts, and they usually disappear quickly)
3 to 4 cups canola oil, for frying (use the same oil for shrimp)
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoon granulated sugar
Pinch of salt

For the shrimp:
¼ cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
¼ teaspoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons honey (optional)
Pinch of salt

⅓ cup cornstarch

8 ounces broccoli crowns, cut into 2 inch florets
