Jumpo Fried Mayo Shrimp with Walnuts and Broccoli

I have to say that this is one of my favorite Chinese dish. First off I love shrimp and plus it is deep fried with condensed milk and mayonnaise - yum yum (all this goodness, how can one resist!) Growing up, my grandmother used to cook shrimp with ketchup and I remembered loving the sauce and I would pour the sauce all over my rice, peel all the shrimp and mix it all together with the rice. I would have my own bowl of orangy rice with bits of shrimp. It was so simple but yet so good.

Love the presentation of the shrimp. If you want, you can drizzle some of the mixed mayo sauce over the top.

Jumbo shrimps

I mix this with flour but if you do not have this, you can just use flour

Remember to double coat the shrimp.

For yummy sweet, tangy sauce

Golden goodness

Candied walnuts


2 lb shrimp - about 30+ shrimp
1 tsp soy sauce
1 TBSP white wine or cooking wine
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
2 egg white
1.5 cup tempura powder + 1/2 cup of flour (if you don't have tempura powder, you can use all flour)

1 whole broccoli, cut
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup walnuts
1 TBSP sugar

1/2 cup mayo
squeeze half lemon juice
3 TBSP condensed milk (alter depending on preference. I see a lot of recipes with condensed milk ratio same as mayo but I personally find that too sweet)

Peel and devein the shrimp. Mix shrimp with soy sauce, white wine, pepper, salt, egg whites. Dip each shrimp into the powder and flour.

Heat up half pan of oil. Right before frying the shrimp, if you have more time dip again in more powder and flour. This double coating of flour/powder will allow the shrimp to be crispier and more fuller. It also looks and tastes better! Fry each shrimp for about 2 minutes (does not need to be too long since shrimps cook fast). Then with the same oil, fry walnuts (3-5 minutes). Add sugar on top of the walnuts when it comes right out of the hot oil and toss around.

In a saute pan, heat some oil. Add broccoli, some pepper and salt and stir fry for about 3 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water to the pan and cover, allowing the broccoli to steam for about 3-5 minutes until done. Remove from pan and the fun part is lining the broccoli around the edge of a large plate with the broccoli pieces.

The sauce is so easy to make. Just mix the mayo, condensed milk and half lemon juice together and there you go!
This is a great dish to make for family events because of the presentation as you have the broccoli on the ring of the plate and the shrimps with sweet walnuts tossed in the middle. You can either drizzle the mayonnaise on top of the mayo or use as a dipping sauce or even mix it all in together with the shrimp. 

Cooking is all about experimenting and letting your imagination go wild. There is really no wrong! I mean, you may end up with something that is not as good tasting BUT at least next time you know what NOT to do. I hope you enjoy this recipe and one of my favorite foods! :)

On a side note, if you like coconut, you can even add a little bit of coconut milk into your dipping sauce to give it that extra boost! ;)
