Set out 3 bowls: in first one, mix together tapioca flour & ginger in second beat the two eggs well, put the chopped candied walnuts in the third bowl.
Dredge the shrimp in egg, then flour, then egg again, finally in the walnuts. Set aside the prawns once coated.
Heat a ½" of oil in small skillet over med-high. Once hot drop in the prawns 3-4 at a time, don't crowd them. As you see the edges start to become opaque gently flip with a fork and cook another minute. Drain on pastry cooling rack or plate (no towel, they will stick)
