We gave a healthy spin to this popular takeout favorite. Walnuts are given a brown sugar coating that pairs nicely with sweet and savory shrimp. Serve the shrimp with rice and steamed veggies to make it a full, healthy meal. This ultra-quick dinner recipe is sure to become a new weeknight favorite. Source: EatingWell.com, January 2020

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water and brown sugar to a simmer in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; cook until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Stir in walnuts; cook, stirring often, until the sugar is golden and caramelized, about 2 minutes. Spread the walnuts evenly on a parchment paper-lined plate. Wipe out the pan.

  • Stir shrimp, honey and 1 tablespoon oil together in a bowl. Return the skillet to medium-high heat. Add the shrimp mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are well browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, pepper, salt and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a small bowl; add to the shrimp mixture in the pan, stirring to coat. Sprinkle with the caramelized walnuts and scallions. If desired, serve with rice.
