White Honey Walnut Shrimp with Strawberries: an Asian Dinner Recipe that’s EASY enough for a week night, FANCY enough for a date night!
We recently went our for another night on the Las Vegas Strip…and it was the best dinner I’ve had yet. For as many times as we’ve been out (we have a lot of guests we have to entertain) that’s saying a lot! We went to Red 8 at the Wynn. The restaurant itself was not the best restaurant I’ve been to, more on the casual side, but man… did I order right! I got the honey walnut shrimp and I was really surprised when I saw it served with strawberries. I recreated it at home and we both loved the results. This is a perfect meal to spoil your honey with.
