  • Chop and mash shrimp using a large knife. Mix in flour, egg yolks, salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks and fold into the shrimp mixture.

  • Slice bread into 4 pieces each. Put 2 teaspoons of the shrimp mixture onto each piece and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  • Starting with the shrimp side down, fry for 3 minutes. Turn, and fry for another 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oil, drain on paper towels and serve warm.

I like this recipe. Pretty basic & simple. I just made shrimp toast for the first time using this recipe. I added a couple drops of hoisin sauce because I read a review that it tasted a bit bland. I'm not even very familiar with the taste of that sauce I hardly use it but I had some on hand. I also liked that this calls for whole wheat bread. I didn't have any sesame seeds so I used bread crumbs. I have put sesame seeds on my grocery list because I think I would prefer them with it. This is my fav appetizer at the restaurant & I usually spend between 2.50 & 4.00 in the chinese restaurant. No more! Thanks! P.S. I wish they could have a video on how to make this. I just want to be sure I am preparing them correctly. Read More
