Honey Pecan Shrimps

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

This is a crispy on the outside and soft and moist inside shrimps that is perfected with the enhance by the creaminess of the mayo and sweetness of the honey with a hint of tangy from the lemon juice. It one of those dish that just melts in your mouth and you can’t help but have more than one. I for one love this rich dish even though I feel very guilty stuffing my face in it. For this very reason I tried not to make it too often. In fact, I made only twice a year. One for Chinese New Year and another time around my eldest son birthday, because he just love it. He said that he can never have enough of it! Now that he moved out, I will have to make this more often to lure him to visit me. lol There not much preparation to this dish, only to coat it in flour, fry and coat it with real mayo and honey. A very simple dish to make, yet bursting with flavor that still linger even after you swallow it. It will leave a great impression if you aim to press your guest or your family once in awhile. It always did for me!
