Shrimp in Mayo Sauce with Peaches

This ‘Shrimp in Mayo Sauce with Peaches’ dish, which contains ingredients, such as condensed milk and mayo that don't seem so harmonized until you try it.  You will then agree that these two ingredients and shrimp work so well together.  Tossing with the mayo sauce, it doesn't ruin the crunchy coating of the shrimp at all.  The peaches also play a big role in this dish.  They add a fruity taste to it.  No wonder every time when I am in a Chinese restaurant, I frequently see customers order this dish.  I really enjoy this great recipe, and I have never failed with it.

  1. I could eat 4 servings of this and want more...I LOVE shrimp any which way but this way looks particularly divine!!

  2. I can't wait to try this I had it at a restaurant and they served it over crunchy noodles, do you know what kind of noodles they may have been?

    1. Hi Peggy, the noodles are called rice vermicelli noodles. They puff up when they are in hot oil. Thanks for visiting my blog! :)

  3. I love this recipe. I cooked this for my family and we all loved it. This is my favorite way to prepare shrimp. Thank you for the recipe.
