Honey Walnut Shrimp

Recipe by CindiJ

This is one of my favorite dishes at a well known KC restaurant. It's taken me quite a while to perfect this but I think this is very close.

I loved the sauce, but I only rated it 3 stars cause the breading was too thick for me. The second time, I dipped the shrimp in very lightly beat egg whites and tossed them in cornstarch. This lightly coated the shrimp the way I like. The sauce is not to be beat though, incredible taste.
