About this Recipe

This recipe was created by Brava community member, Pat Choi. Her custom cook was so popular that the Brava chefs decided to turn it into an official Brava recipe! This recipe is a simple, healthier take on the classic dish, Honey Walnut Shrimp. Her version of this dish air fries the shrimp which gets them nice and crispy without needing to deep fry them in oil.
