Tender shrimp are lightly coated and fried to golden perfection, then tossed in a sweet honey sauce with candied almonds. Serve over rice for a perfectly complete, Asian-style dish!
My eyes were opened to the wonderful world of rice in a bag when I created this recipe. Let’s just say that I don’t ever want to make rice differently after making Success® Boil-in-Bag Rice. And Honey Walnut Shrimp was the perfect protein to put on top of it. I was so excited to eat this dish when it was all ready. My husband even said I ate my meal in record time. ha! I’m telling you, it’s delicious.
It’s amazing how there could be so much awesomeness going on in one brightly colored box. Success® Rice is the ORIGINAL no measure, no mess boil-in-bag rice that cooks perfectly every time. And it’s ready in 10 minutes! It’s a beautiful thing. You can make it on the stove or you can put it in the microwave and it tastes wonderful either way. Success White rice can sit in hot water after cooked for up to 30 minutes before being served, making it foolproof.
It’s a matter of placing the rice bags into a pot of water…
…and watching the magic happen!
I wasn’t even worried about getting the hot bags out of the pot. Each bag has a slit at the top to easily insert a fork and pull it right out. Then open the bag and fluff the rice with a fork right into your bowl(s). Super fast and easy!
This recipe is a great meal to serve to your family or when friends come over. And it tastes like it comes from an Asian restaurant. You can prepare the walnuts and shrimp while the rice is cooking and just let the rice bags sit in the water while everything else is being finished. The entire meal comes together in about 30-40 minutes. Even faster if you have an extra hand helping bread the shrimp!
