Crunchy sweet walnuts with crispy prawns--a wonderful combination. Don't let the mayonnaise part throw you off--it is very good.

This is sooo good. I'm 13 & I made this & both my family and I enjoyed it a lot. It's almost better than what we always order at the Chinese restaurant! But good enough. :) Thanks for the recipe! (& I think I used more mayo and sweetened condensed milk)

There were GREAT!!! DH and I loved getting this from a chinese restaurant in California and this tasted almost exactly like the real thing! I didn't bother frying the walnuts either - I just sauteed in a little butter with sugar and then drizzled in honey. I did think the mayo taste in the sauce was a tad strong so I ended up adding more condensed milk. Next time I will use equal amounts mayonnaise and condensed milk. I'm so happy to find this recipe!!!!
