  • Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add sugar; cook until dissolved, about 1 minute. Add walnuts. Turn heat down to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until syrup thickens and turns into a dark caramel color, 4 to 7 minutes.

  • Line a baking sheet. Pour walnuts onto the baking sheet, spacing the pieces apart. Let cool.

  • Mix mayonnaise, honey, condensed milk, and lemon juice together in a small bowl for the dressing.

  • Drain excess liquid from the shrimp. Place cornstarch in a plastic sandwich bag. Toss shrimp in the cornstarch in batches.

  • Heat 2 to 3 inches of oil in a medium to large pot to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Drop shrimp carefully into the hot oil in batches; fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes per batch. Drain on paper towels to preserve crispiness.

  • Serve shrimp with the walnuts and honey dressing.
