Success! Honey Walnut Shrimp is a dish I crave when I'm pregnant. I've tried my hand at different variations of this recipe, but have had disastrous results. Last night, I finally made some that turned out wonderful.

Yum-yum! My favorite sushi place around the corner made an "almond shrimp" that I adored... then they went out of business. (As if I wasn't eating enough of it?!?)This recipe looks like it might taste like their dish... will have to try! Thanks for sharing.
