Shrimps in Mayonnaise

This dish is popular in many chinese restaurants in Indonesia. It tastes so creamy and delicious. Some people like to make it with thick mayonnaise which will make it tastes creamier. I make it with less mayonnaise (to reduce fat content in it). But of course you can make it with more mayonnaise if you like.

I use frozen shrimps I always buy in asian market (Asiamarkt). It's not so easy to find fresh shrimps in south Germany where is far away from the sea. If we could find them, it would be so expensive. The shrimps are battered first then fried until crispy golden brown. Then mixed with the mayonnaise. I like the mayonnaise to be sweet, so I add a small amount of honey.
