1/2 c Walnuts
5 c Water

Rinse walnuts, then boil in 5 cups water, continually changing water until clear. When clear, boil with sugar until sugar dissolves.

Heat 2 cups oil until almost smoking, then deep-fry walnuts until they're shiny and brown, no longer golden. Remove walnuts to cookie sheet, let cool.

Mix cornstarch and egg whites together to form a thick, sticky texture and mix well with prawns. Set aside.

Mix honey, mayonnaise, lemon juice and condensed milk in a medium bowl until smooth.

Heat oil until boiling, then deep fry prawns until golden brown. Drain, then fold in honey-mayonnaise mixture. Mix well, sprinkle with walnuts, and arrange on platter.
