This recipe is definitely a guilty pleasure and an indulgence, but I personally think indulgences are fine as long as they’re in moderation.

Have I mentioned that I love shrimp? No? Well, if I didn’t, you now know that I do. Honey Walnut Shrimp is my absolute favorite shrimp dish! We always order it when we eat out at a Chinese restaurant, which honestly isn’t that often. My family firmly believes that if you know how to cook, there’s no need to eat out. So we rarely go out to eat except for special occasions or extremely lazy days. But while this is my favorite dish, it can be pretty pricy. After all, it is seafood.
