Just wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year and all the best for 2010! I made these prawn toasts for a buffet style meal (at least I thought it was)for New Year´s Eve as it´s something I´ve been wanting to try for awhile now.Also, it´s one of the only things I eat which contains prawns as I am not keen on fish or seafood.
Prawn Toasts (Makes 12)
137g prawns, desfrosted (or you could use fresh)
1/2 spring onion, finely chopped (white part only)
10g water chestnuts
1/2 beaten egg
1 tbsp cold water
3 slices of bread (I used bread with no crusts, if it has crusts cut them off)
enough oil for frying (I used olive oil)
1/4 cup of sesame seeds
1. Blitz the spring onion and water chestnuts in a food processor.
2. Add the prawns, egg and water and again blitz in the food processer till you end up with a paste.
3.Spread the bread with prawn paste and cut into 4 triangles and dip into sesame seeds.
4. Fry in abundant hot oil with the sesame seed side facing up until it is golden and crispy and you have an easy,quick Chinese starter or party snack!
