  • Total Time 15m

6 Servings


  • Cooking oil, for frying
  • 3 cups walnut halves
  • Glaze
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice

In a wok, heat the oil for deep-frying to 300 degrees F over medium heat. Add the walnuts and deep-fry, turning frequently, until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.
