Ingredients

1 pound large prawns (tail on)
2 tablespoons honey
1 to 2 tablespoon hot chili sesame oil
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup very finely chopped walnuts
2 -- egg whites, beaten
Ginger-Orange Sauce
1 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon rice vinegar or lime juice

Instructions

  1. Shrimp: Preheat oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Stir together prawns, honey, sesame oil, ginger and garlic in a medium bowl; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Place breadcrumbs and walnuts in a small bowl.  Holding each shrimp by the tail, dip in egg whites, then roll in breadcrumb mixture, pressing to coat. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with Ginger Orange Sauce.
  2. Ginger Orange Sauce: Simmer orange juice and ginger in a small saucepan until reduced to 1/2 cup. Remove half the sauce into a cup and add corn starch, stirring until smooth.  Return this mixture to the sauce pan, combining all the orange liquid and blend well.  Stir in honey and rice vinegar.
