Honey Walnut Shrimp

Who doesn’t like the delicious Honey Walnut Shrimp from Panda Express, right? The only problem is that you’ll be lucky to get 4 pieces of shrimp along with walnuts and broccoli taking over most of the space and it’s not cheap either! So here comes a copycat recipe so you can make this at home. @sarchakra
