A healthier copycat Panda Express recipe.

For the Shrimp: – avocado oil – raw shrimp – sea salt – egg – tapioca flour – black pepper



Make the Creamy Honey Sauce

Add the ingredients for the sauce to a small bowl and whisk well until everything is combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Whisk the egg into a large mixing bowl then place the peeled raw shrimp in the bowl and stir gently until the shrimp is coated with egg. Add in the tapioca flour and gently toss until everything is coated in the flour.


Prepare the Shrimp

Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place shrimp in a single layer and cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side, until the shrimp have a nice golden brown color, are nice and crispy and cooked through.



Add the walnuts and honey to the same skillet you used to cook the shrimp, leaving any leftover oil in the skillet. Add a small amount of additional oil to protect the honey from burning.

Make the Candied Walnuts

Heat over medium heat and stir occasionally, cooking the walnuts until they are coated in honey and the honey around them is sizzling, about 3 to 5 minutes.
